No offer received for Ronaldo, says Real boss

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez

"That's why I will speak with him when he gets back and see what's up", Perez told Spanish radio Onda Cero late Monday.

The forward's current club and worldwide team-mate, Pepe, is expected to join PSG on a free transfer when his Real Madrid contract expires at the end of the month.

Bayern Munich have insisted there is no basis to the speculation linking them with a move for Cristiano Ronaldo.

United have been strongly linked with a move for their former forward, but Perez is not thinking about the possibility of Real losing their talisman.

Those allegations were denied in a statement by Ronaldo's management company Gestifute, while Real Madrid say they have "full confidence" in a player who "will prove his total innocence in this process".

According to A Bola, the four-time Ballon d'Or victor will quit Spain in outrage at the country's tax authorities and dismayed by Real's subsequent response. "Obviously, something has happened, something has affected him, his credibility".

"If Cristiano wants to leave Real Madrid, it won't be for money".

The pair are now in Russian Federation on Confederations Cup duty with Portugal.

Perez, though, says there is a new faith in current No 1 Keylor Navas at the Bernabeu - and Real have not been in touch with De Gea again.

"I have not talked to him or his father".

"I've not spoken with Nasser (Al-Khelaifi, PSG president) or with anybody", Perez said.

Real boss Zinedine Zidane has begged Ronaldo to reconsider, but the superstar appears set on leaving.

Perez, who began his second spell in 2009 and has overseen three Champions League wins in the last four years, has barely had to contend with any rivals for his post since the La Liga club changed internal rules for presidential candidates in 2012.
