Carlos Queiroz has described stories linking Cristiano Ronaldo with a move to Real Madrid as ‘fantasies’.
Reports in the Spanish press maintain that Real Madrid are planning to launch a bid for the Portuguese winger in the summer, but Queiroz claims United are preparing a contract extension for the 21-year-old.
“No (to a possible transfer). In addition to that, we are speaking with him about renewing his contract,” Queiroz told Marca.
“The club have a clear policy. It is not necessary that a player has to finish his contract before we think about renewing it.
“(Ryan) Giggs has been with us for 14 years and he has renewed his contract many times. This club do not need the agents to recognise the work of the players.
“We anticipate things ourselves and that is what we are going to do with Cristiano.
“It is natural that the media talk about Cristiano Ronaldo with Real Madrid,” he added. “He is a great player and Madrid are a great club, but it is just speculation.
“They are fantasies. The football that he is playing in Manchester is an example that he is happy here and he has his head at United. He has talent and is the best in the world.
“He is always the first to arrive at training and the last to go. Many times when the session has finished, we shower, eat and then we look at the pitch and he is still training.
“He is a player who has a divine gift. He was born to be the best in the world.”
