The Glazers reject Marca rumors
Manchester United owners The Glazers have rejected reports from Spain that they have agreed to open talk with Real Madrid to sell Cristiano Ronaldo.
Spanish journal Marca has inspired the story of selling Ronaldo from the start and was again in playful mode insisting that sources close to the Reds’ American owners said they “have agreed to the operation” and discussions could be started with Real Madrid next week, but a spokesman for the Glazers said at M.E.N. Sport: “It is absolute nonsense. The family completely maintains their original stance and that is that Cristiano Ronaldo is not for sale.
“There have been no developments as far as we are concerned. There has been absolutely nothing said from this end.”
Meanwhile, dutch international midfielder Wesley Sneijder said the reported wages Ronaldo could be on if he moves to Madrid would cause trouble between old players.
“It would be bad for the dressing room because he would earn better wages than the rest of the squad,” said Sneijder. “It wouldn’t be a problem to me but some team-mates wouldn’t fancy it. Here we have players like him, Arjen Robben and Robinho for example.
“For sure I want to play with Cristiano but the dressing room’s harmony has to be maintained,” Sneijder added.
“For me, this Madrid side do not need new signings,” said Sneijder.
“In the last few matches last year we were very solid and the team have grown a lot.”
