Speaking in a press conference, the Borussia Dortmund CEO clearly stated that there have been no talks initiated with Manchester United or the player over a possible transfer.

'I love this player, it's certainly a charming idea to see Cristiano Ronaldo play at Signal Iduna Park. But there is no contact at all between those involved. So you should stop talking about it.' Watzke said.

Despite reports linking him away from the club, Manchester United have been adamant about keeping Cristiano Ronaldo with the 37-year-old seeing out the final year of his contract at Old Trafford. However, Erik ten Hag is willing to sanction the Portuguese's departure after a dismal start to the new season.
