PSG SPORTING DIRECTOR Leonardo has stressed that the Ligue 1 giants have no intention to make a move for Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portuguese forward stated on Sunday that he is unhappy at the Santiago Bernabeu, fuelling speculation about a potential transfer away from the Spanish capital.
The 27-year-old star refused to celebrate his two goals in Madrid’s 3-0 win over Granada.
With the French transfer window open until September 4, PSG still have the opportunity to make a late swoop for Ronaldo, but Leonardo has now made it clear that they have no such plans.
“We have never even thought about making a move for Cristiano Ronaldo,” Leonardo told RAC1.
“When we want a player, we talk directly to the club. This has not been the case. PSG have not been in touch with anyone from Real Madrid.
“We are very pleased with what we have achieved in the transfer market this summer.”
The former Manchester United star has a contract with Madrid until June 2015.
Meanwhile, former Real Madrid defender Enrique Perez Diaz has described Ronaldo as ‘like a toddler throwing a tantrum.’
Diaz, nicknamed Pachin, is unimpressed by the prolific attacker’s behaviour and believes that he would have expressed his dismay with his situation at an earlier stage if he really wanted to leave the club.
“In my eyes it is a bit like a toddler throwing a tantrum. I do not think that Ronaldo is really unhappy at Real Madrid. He would have spoken up before if that was the case,” he told Goal.com.
“Why would he not be happy at Madrid? The team is built around him, which makes perfect sense as he is an extraordinary player.
“Every player is happy at Real Madrid, and so is Ronaldo. If he wanted to leave, he would have said so before, not now that the transfer market’s closed.”
