Ronaldo will not be leaving insist United
Cristiano Ronaldo will not be leaving Manchester United at any price said the club's chief executive David Gill on their eve of the Champions League final clash with Chelsea in Moscow, reported CNN.
The Portuguese international winger has regularly been linked with a move to Real Madrid and fueled further speculation when he was quoted on Spanish TV claiming that he would reassess his future after the final.
But Gilll insists Ronaldo, the Premier League's top scorer this season, is going nowhere:
"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 told BBC Radio.
"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."
A possible $120 million move by Real for Ronaldo has been one of the major talking points ahead of the Champions League showdown and reports on Tuesday that United's debt was over $1.5B gave fresh credence to the speculation.
But Gill insisted that they do not need to generate extra cash.
"Manchester United is not a club that sells its main assets," he said.
"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."
Ronaldo signed a new five-year deal at United last year which ties him to the Red Devils until 2012 with the option of a further year.
