Reports from El Chiringuito de Jugones suggested that Jorge Mendes met with Manchester United's Martin Ferguson to discuss a potential move for Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo. However, "Cristiano Ronaldo is the cornerstone" of Real Madrid's long-term project and Los Blancos are "not interested in selling him", sources told Managing Madrid.

If Ronaldo and Mendes are indeed planning a move -- something that it's not clear just yet --, it would take a "crazy offer, not just €150 million" to sign him away from Real Madrid. Furthermore, the Portuguese star would need to let the fans know he wants out.

Again, to say that Ronaldo wants to leave Real Madrid seems like pure speculation. However, it's now clear that Los Blancos do not want to get rid of the reigning FIFA Ballon D'Or winner.
