Cristiano Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes has put an end to the rumours that the Real Madrid forward could rejoin Manchester United.

It's been reported that the Old Trafford club were exploring the possibility of bringing back the man they sold to the Spanish giants for £80million in 2009.

However, Mendes told Spanish radio station Cadena COPE that Ronaldo will stay with Real Madrid 'forever'

"Cristiano is very happy at Real Madrid and has always been very happy. He’s going to break all the records with Real Madrid and he’s going to retire here," said Mendes.

"He has a lot of love for United because his heart was there for six years, but now he’s only thinking about Real Madrid and he’s going to stay here forever."

Last month a group of Man Utd fans flew a plane over a Real Madrid match with the message 'Come Home Ronaldo' clearly visible, it looks as though their wishes will not be granted.
