Real Madrid director of football Emilio Butragueno has dismissed speculation that Cristiano Ronaldo will move to Manchester United this summer, reiterating that he is under contract at the Bernabeu.

Rumours have suggested Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to re-sign the player he sold for £80m for years ago, particularly after watching Ronaldo score the winner against United in the Champions League last week.

But despite the English media speculating over the Portugal winger's future, Butragueno argues that Madrid have no intention of selling him.

Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo is not leaving Real Madrid for Manchester United, according to the club's director.

"Cristiano is under contract and we are very happy with him," he said, according to the Manchester Evening News.

"We are delighted he is at Madrid because he is a fantastic professional, and very ambitious in a positive way.

"His contribution to the team and the club has been amazing since he arrived.

"We are very grateful he came to us and are lucky he plays for Real Madrid."

Rumours have also been circulating that Jose Mourinho will leave his post at the end of the season, leaving many of Real's star players with an uncertain future as club bosses search for a new coach.

Rafa Benitez has been connected with the job, but should Mourinho leave the Spanish giants at the end of the season, the speculation that Ronaldo might return to the club where he made his name will no doubt increase.
