UEFA Champions League: Cristiano Ronaldo's Real Madrid-to-AC Milan Move Unlikely
Just a day before the first of two (more) epic Real Madrid vs. Barcelona tilts, Madrid bosses did what they could to try and silence the Cristiano Ronaldo-to-AC Milan rumour.
Few took it seriously to begin with, since Real Madrid have never been considered light in the wallet.
Still, it didn't stop Real Madrid general director Jorge Valdano from trying to dispel the rumours, anyway.
According to a goal.com report, Valdano was flattered but ultimately uninterested in AC Milan's overtures for Ronaldo.
"It's nice to hear that a president like Berlusconi and a club like Milan dream of our players," Valdano told Sky Sport Italia. "But Cristiano Ronaldo will remain with us."
Portuguese winger Ronaldo scored Los Blancos' game-winner in Real Madrid's 1-0 triumph over Barcelona in the Copa del Rey. The Italian giants AC Milan have since pledged their willingness to do whatever it takes to bring Ronaldo to Milan.
Real Madrid and Barcelona face each other in tonight's UEFA Champions League semifinal at the Bernabéu and again on Tuesday at the Camp Nou.
