Latest Football News From Manchester: Atletico Madrid captain Koke breaks silence on Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo made his feelings clear to the Reds this month that he wished to leave Old Trafford should a 'reasonable' offer come in for his services. The 37-year-old would go on to miss United's pre-season tour in Thailand and Australia due to 'family reasons'.

The Portuguese ace returned to Carrington on Tuesday for talks with Erik ten Hag about his future and he watched on as United beat Wrexham 4-1 in a behind-closed-doors friendly. Meanwhile, speculation linking Ronaldo with other clubs has continued with the Madrid side being the latest to be thinking about a move.

Such speculation has caused anger among the Atletico fanbase with banners reading 'CR7 not welcome' being spotted at their pre-season game against Numancia on Wednesday. When asked for his thoughts on Ronaldo joining his team, Koke appeared to snub the Portuguese ace.

He told Directo Gol : “There is no talk of Cristiano Ronaldo in the dressing room. My teammates are great players.

“We have strikers from Argentina, Brazil, some from Portugal, France and Spain. Great players who can do great things.
