Florentino Perez doubts Ronaldo Old Trafford return.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez says he is confident Cristiano Ronaldo will spend the rest of his career at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The Portuguese has been linked with a sensational return to Manchester United this summer, after admitting last season that he was ‘sad’ at some aspects of life in the Spanish capital.
Ronaldo has just two years remaining on his current deal at Real and recently announced on social networking site twitter that media reports suggesting he was set to sign a new contract were false.
All the news about my renewal with Real Madrid are false.

Perez, however, remains unconcerned about the future of the forward, who has scored 146 La Liga goals in 136 games since joining Real from Man United for £80m in 2009.
“Cristiano made these statements because there was some information in the media which did not match reality,” said Perez, referring to Ronaldo’s contract tweet.
“Soon we will clarify this issue. I have no doubt that Cristiano is going to retire at Real Madrid. I am convinced that he will renew.
“Keeping him is our most important activity, around whom we can build the Madrid of the future,” the president told The Sun.
