Speaking to a group of fans in Italy, Pérez was asked about the possibility of Ronaldo making a big-money move to eclipse Neymar’s 222-million-euro transfer to PSG. “Sell Cristiano? Never. I wouldn’t sell Cristiano if they paid his weight in gold. Only the great players bring in great fees,” the Real president was quoted as saying in La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Pérez was speaking in Stromboli where he spent a few days while the team prepared for the European Supercup against Manchester United on Tuesday, with Ronaldo included in Zinedine Zidane’s squad.
