He told L'Equipe: â€śFirst, you have to listen to the will of the player.
â€śIf two clubs came to offer ÂŁ100million for Cristiano and Cristiano wants to go to Madrid, do you think I could make him sign for the other club? You think I could go against his wishes? All I can do is advise him. But all this makes sense only if we are ready to sell Cristiano for ÂŁ100m.
â€śWe have already sold players to Madrid: Heinze, Beckham, Van Nistelrooy. We sold them those players because we wanted to. We didnâ€™t sell Cristiano because we didnâ€™t want to. Itâ€™s just a business question, not an ethical question.
â€śI wonâ€™t let my personal feelings influence my decision making.â€ť
