Real Madrid will not give in to the temptation of re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo because they feel “his time has passed”, according to reports.
Juventus could be forced to cash in on their Portuguese superstar for a cut-price £50million in order to balance the books following the global spread of coronavirus
Real Madrid were linked with a return for their club legend who won four Champions League titles during his nine years with the club.
But AS reports how the club will look towards the future with plans in the pipeline to spend huge amounts of cash on Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe.
They quote from sources at the Bernabeu how signing Ronaldo “does not fit into the club’s policy” and their “goals are different.”
Mbappe remains their top transfer target with the forward dropping subtle hints that he’s ready to quit Paris Saint-Germain.
He said: “It’s very important moment for me, I have come to a turning point in my career.
“I have discovered a lot here, and I feel it is perhaps the moment to have more responsibility.
“I hope that can maybe be at Paris Saint-Germain, that would be a great pleasure, or perhaps elsewhere with a new project.”
Mbappe is also holding off putting pen-to-paper on extending his contract that expires in the summer of 2022.
Pogba also remains on the shortlist as he moves closer to the Manchester United exit door.
It is claimed the wantaway midfielder is so eager to leave Old Trafford that he is considering to exploit Article 17 in Fifa’s rulebook to buy himself out of a contract.
