Perez says he hasn't spoken to Ronaldo about rumors of exit

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez feels Zinedine Zidane has developed into the best coach in the world since taking charge of the Santiago Bernabeu side.

"The whole thing is very odd because Cristiano Ronaldo is a great guy, both as a player and a person".

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

Spanish radio station Onda Cero say Perez was to "give his version of the 'Ronaldo case"' in an interview with them late last night, while an event marking his re-election was scheduled to be held at 7:30pm at the Bernabeu's presidential box.

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo runs with the ball during the Confederations Cup, Group A soccer match between Portugal and Mexico, at the Kazan Arena, Russia, Sunday, June 18, 2017.

"I'm going to answer in Portuguese and I tell you that tomorrow we have a very important game".




Asked about potential clubs Ronaldo could join, Perez said: "I'm not contemplating Ronaldo leaving".

Speculation over Ronaldo's future is set to be broached later on Monday by Real president Perez, who stood unopposed for re-election this month and will now continue at the head of the European and Spanish champions until 2021.

Madrid's long-time president said the club had not received any transfer offers for Ronaldo.

It will now be up to a judge to decide whether to take the matter to court.

Ronaldo has denied any wrongdoing, and Madrid issued a statement last week saying it believed the player was innocent.

A four-time Ballon d'Or victor, the 32-year-old Ronaldo is the top European soccer player.
