Real warned off Ronaldo

United determined to keep hold of winger

Manchester United assistant manager Carlos Queiroz has warned his former club Real Madrid that even £96million would not be enough to prise away Cristiano Ronaldo.

Spanish giants Real Madrid have been continually linked with a move for United ace Ronaldo with reports suggesting they are preparing a mega bid for his services in the summer.

Ronaldo is regarded as the best player on the planet after a remarkable season at Old Trafford and United are thought to be considering offering the 23-year-old a new improved deal to keep him at the club.

The former Sporting Lisbon ace has never hidden his desire to one day try his luck in Spain, but Queiroz insists even a world-record transfer fee would not tempt United into selling their prized asset.

"We would not sell him for 120million euros," Queiroz told Spanish newspaper Marca.

"You can offer all the money in the world, but there is no amount that can buy him."
