Real Madrid say have they have not given up hope of signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United.
The Portuguese winger has been linked with a move to Real, despite Manchester United stating he is not for sale.
But Real’s sporting director Predrag Mijatovic clearly isn’t put off by United’s stance.
He told The Sun: “Ronaldo is an exceptional footballer and, although we know signing a player like that is very complicated, we will just have to keep working on it.
“If one day a chance opens up, then we will be there trying to sign him. He’d grace any team in the world.”
Ronaldo has been in impressive form for United this season, scoring16 goals in just 17 starts.
