Former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has ruled out a move to Manchester City.
Ronaldo, currently at Real Madrid, is reportedly the highest paid footballer in the world.
However, that hasn’t stopped reports suggesting the likes of City and Paris Saint-Germain are hopeful of tempting him away from the Bernabeu with big money offers.
Ronaldo insisted he will not move to City or anywhere else purely for the money and that his next destination, if there is one, will be motivated by “passion”.
When asked if the right financial package could tempt him into leaving Madrid, Ronaldo said: “You think the money is going to change my mind now, at 30 years old? Because if you speak about the money, I’ll go to Qatar.
“They’d probably have more money than Manchester City. But it’s not about the money, it’s about the passion.
Ronaldo has a number of lucrative sponsorship deals on top of his eye-watering wage packet so it’s safe to say that money doesn’t concern him too much. His comments will give hope to United fans over his potential return to Old Trafford as the Portuguese has said on a number of occasions that he is still loves the club.
