Cristiano Ronaldo will only play for Real Madrid in Europe - Michel Salgado

Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo Transfer News

With issues surrounding Alvaro Morata's exit, it's suggested that Bale could be sacrificed instead as Real know that they could fetch around £100m for the Welshman with Man Utd, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain all paired with a keen interest. The same thing happened with David Beckham and other Englishmen who came to Spain.

And Diario Gol claim Real are anxious his fitness struggles could one day scupper their chance to sell him to United for big money.

Salgado has played with Ronaldo at Real in 2009 for a brief period before joining English Premier League (EPL) club Blackburn Rovers.

"Last season the pain in my ankle made it hard for me to be fully fit, but I am able to go flat out in pre-season", he said in an interview with Spanish sports paper Diario Marca.

"I am sure this is going to be a great season".

And, in his absence, the likes of Isco and Marco Asensio flourished to inspire Real to both La Liga and the Champions League.

Ronaldo has helped Real win the Champions League thrice, scoring twice in May's final as they became the first club to retain the title, and he is also the competition's record goal scorer with 105 strikes. "He is the guy that we all look to when we are playing the big games", Salgado said.

"I think that is the thing that he learnt in the previous year. he was ready to be Cristiano Ronaldo when we needed, in the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final". He is doing really well under the manager, and is physically very good. "Maybe he can not [increase his level] further, but obviously he is going to be really important for Real Madrid".
