Jose Mourinho has told Manchester United manager David Moyes to forget about trying to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford.
The Red Devils were reportedly looking into bringing the Portuguese back to Old Trafford, despite new Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti insisting Ronaldo was not for sale.
But former los Blancos coach Mourinho has put a dampener on talk of a potential deal by declaring that he does not expect the 28-year-old will leave Spain due to the club's financial muscle.
"What I know is that Real Madrid is such a rich club that they don't need to sell Cristiano," Mourinho, who shares the same agent - Jorge Mendes - as the former Manchester United star, told reporters.
"And [Madrid] are such a rich club I think they can swallow up any offer another club can make for Ronaldo.
"I know Ronaldo loves Manchester United and I know he loves the Premier League but I think he is going to stay.
"It's just a feeling. I've had no contact with him, nothing. It's just my feeling."
