Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon appears to have conceded that the club will not be signing Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.
The Manchester United winger has been linked with a move to Real Madrid despite the Premier League club’s insistence that he will be staying at Old Trafford.
United threatened to report Real to Fifa earlier this week over their very public pursuit of Ronaldo, and Calderon attempted to cool the row by stressing that Real would not try to persuade Ronaldo to move.
“You can’t buy what the owner does not want to sell,” Calderon said on Sky Sports News.
“Real Madrid are friends with Manchester United and we do not want to fall out with them.”
