Ronaldo´s not for sale, vows Man Utd chief (SN)

Cristiano Ronaldo will not be allowed to leave Manchester United at any price according to the club's chief executive David Gill.

Ronaldo has been repeatedly linked with a 100 million pounds (120 million euros) move to Real Madrid over the last year and the Portugal winger recently refused to rule out the possibility of a switch to Spain in the future.

But Gill is adamant Ronaldo will see out his contract at Old Trafford.

“Without doubt we are. He's got four more years (on his contract) until 2012, he's been with us for five years and we're sure he'll be with us for many years to come,” Gill said.

“He's clearly one of the best players in the world and he's at a great club, winning trophies.

“He enjoys it immensely here, you can tell that when you speak to him privately. Why would he want to leave?

“We have no intention of letting him go, we will make sure that he's very happy here, as we do with all our top players.”

Reports on Tuesday claimed United have debts of around 764 million pounds but Gill doesn't believe that will force them to cash in on their prize asset.

“Manchester United is not a club that sells its main assets,” he told BBC Radio Five Live.

“In order to service our debts we need a very successful team on the pitch, and you don't achieve that by selling Cristiano Ronaldo.”
