No offer received for Ronaldo, says Real boss

"Ronaldo is Real Madrid player and will continue to be", declared Perez, who confirmed he has not spoken to the player since the Champions League final in Cardiff on June 3rd.

Among the issues Perez will have to deal with is Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo who is threatening to leave Spain after running into problems with Spanish tax authorities.

Perez was asked about his star's situation after being re-elected as president unopposed on Monday.

Ronaldo is in Russian Federation competing for the European champions in the Confederations Cup.

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 will talk with him when the Confederations Cup has finished".

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reported that Manchester United are prepared to pay a staggering £183 million (S$323 million) plus goalkeeper David de Gea - in whom Real have a long-standing interest - in exchange for Ronaldo and United target Alvaro Morata.

United are also anxious that a long-running transfer saga involving Ronaldo could result in the club missing out on other potential signings.

The frenzy of speculation began soon after Ronaldo was accused last week of a 14.7 million euro ($16.8 million) tax evasion through offshore companies.

"I haven't spoken with Cristiano, I learned about it because of what came out in the newspapers".

'I know him and he's a top professional and person and all this is very unusual.

Spanish prosecutors have accused Ronaldo of defrauding the authorities of millions of euros in tax, which he has denied.

"Not I nor anyone at Madrid is contemplating that Cristiano could leave the club".

But Perez was adamant that Real Madrid were not prepared to allow Ronaldo to move on.

"Wish and your dreams will come true", might work in a flawless world, but Ronaldo will know just because he wants to go back to Manchester United, his former club, it doesn't mean he will be able to.

Eight years on, Ronaldo has scored a club-record 406 goals in 394 appearances.

Ronaldo could reunite with head coach Jose Mourinho and work together to accomplish what they failed to do in Real Madrid - win the UEFA Champions League.
