Mourinho tells Man Utd chiefs: Ronaldo using us...

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has ruled out moving for Real Madrid's unhappy superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Diario Gol says Mourinho is convinced United are being used by Ronaldo in a contract stand off with Real.

The Portuguese has made it clear to Real that he wants to leave this summer after being chased by local tax authorities for an outstanding €14m-plus bill.

It's been claimed Ronaldo wants Real to cover the money owed - and Mourinho believes that's the key reason why United have been caught up in the crisis.

Indeed, the manager ruled out a move for Ronaldo two weeks ago and has told United officials that the club is still being mentioned as a destination is proof this is all connected to new contract demands, rather than any serious departure.
