“Not I nor anyone at Madrid is contemplating that Cristiano could leave the club”.
The forward’s current club and global team-mate, Pepe, is expected to join PSG on a free transfer when his Real Madrid contract expires at the end of the month.
Of the Italian goalkeeper, Perez said: ‘We are watching him.’ Mbappe’s 26-goal breakout season at Monaco has also attracted interest. “Obviously, something has happened, something has affected him, his credibility”.
“I haven’t learned very much about the situation, he’s at a very important tournament at the moment in the Confederations Cup and until that ends I’m not going to disturb the atmosphere of his team”, added Perez. “He just wants to be the best player in the world”.
Bayern Munich have insisted there is no basis to the speculation linking them with a move for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 32-year-old is now away with Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, where he has so far evaded questions over his future – including skipping the traditional man-of-the-match press conference after Sunday’s draw with Mexico. I wanted De Gea because I did not know Keylor Navas’.
Calling Ronaldo a good guy, Perez said that he will defend him at all costs.
“I have not talked to him or his father”. I must defend him at all costs, both as a player and as a person. I have no doubt that Cristiano will be able to defend himself.
Elected again in 2013, the last four years have been the most successful of the Perez era, with Madrid winning three Champions Leagues and one La Liga title in that time.
