Real Madrid president Perez rules out Cristiano Ronaldo transfer return and casts doubt on Sergio Ramos' new dealApril 21, 2021
CRISTIANO RONALDO will not be returning to Real Madrid, according to disgraced Los Blancos president Florentino Perez.
The Real chief also cast doubt over Sergio Ramos' future with the defender out of contract at the end of the season.
Ronaldo has been heavily linked with a Real return having cemented himself as one of the greatest players in history at the Bernabeu between 2009 and 2018.
It is suggested Juve will sell him this summer to balance the books and recent reports claimed Los Blancos were planning an emotional reunion.
But during a farcical interview in which Perez, 74, tried to defend the money-grabbing European Super League, he was asked whether the Portuguese would be re-signed.
Perez replied: "They are very good players. Lionel Messi and Cristiano. It's a historical thing.
"Cristiano's return? No. He has a contract with Juventus. But it doesn't make sense for him to come back. I love him a lot, he has given us a lot."
Perez was also asked about Ronaldo's fellow Real legend Ramos' future.
The Spain centre-back is out of the contract at the end of the season and is yet to agree a new deal.
He has been linked with a sensational move to the Premier League, with Manchester United the frontrunners to sign him.

And Ramos recently told Perez 'DO IT!' when the president said they may have to plan for next season without him.
And asked about Ramos, Perez admitted negotiations are proving difficult.
He said: "I also love him very much, but we are in a very bad situation. We have to be realistic.
"I did not say that Ramos is not going to continue. We are thinking about finishing this season, then we will see what happens.
"A lot of things can happen. First we are going to finish this season. We are talking to many players and many are voluntarily lowering their salary.
"Some have already lowered it, specifically the two who have left, Luka Jovic and Martin Odegaard. Last year Ramos accepted. This year he is in a different situation."
Ronaldo has also been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
The French side are one of few clubs in the world who could afford his wages.
And they are said to be planning a swap deal involving Moise Kean and Mauro Icardi.
