Ramon Calderon, the man who signed Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid, has urged the club not to sell the Portuguese superstar for ANY price.

Ronaldo is reportedly seeking a move away from Real this summer having being left ‘outraged’ over accusations of tax fraud by the Spanish authorities.

Manchester United are reportedly putting together a huge financial package to try and lure the 32-year-old back to the club.

But former Real president Calderon is hopeful he will be convinced to stay put, telling talkSPORT: “It would be a big mistake if Florentino Pérez doesn’t try to keep him with us.

“He has broken all the records at the club, he has got three Champions Leagues in four years and LaLiga this year. He has been a very important player.

“It took me a long time and a big effort to sign him when Man United didn’t want to let him go. We have to keep him. 

“I think he will stay. I hope so. It would be very bad business to sell him.

“It doesn’t matter what we can get for him. There is no replacement for him. I don’t see anybody in world football who can substitute for him.

“I hope and wish he can stay with us until he retires.”

Ronaldo has reportedly instructed his agent, Jorge Mendes, to negotiate a return to United, where he spent a hugely successful six years before leaving for Real in 2009.

And while Calderon is hopeful he will be convinced to remain at the Bernabeu, he admits Old Trafford is one of the 32-year-old’s most likeliest destinations if he does indeed move on this summer.

“He is very strong-minded and when he decides something he goes through with it. The point now is whether he really has decided to leave,” he said.

“He likes Manchester United – that is something we all know. One year before he was going to come, he told me that he was really grateful to Manchester United, the fans, the people there, his teammates – everything in the city.”
