Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon is claiming the Spanish giants are no longer interested in acquiring Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United.

"It (a deal for Ronaldo) is not possible," said Calderon. "That matter is over.

"We talked about that last season. Manchester decided they did not want to sell the player and we don't want to do anything against a friendly club like Manchester.

"We accept that Ronaldo decided to stay at Manchester. It is forgotten. Not only for January but, I think, for ever.

"Only if Manchester decided to sell will we be talking about it," he continued.

"But I would like to say clearly that Madrid is not doing anything to disturb a nice and friendly club like Manchester.

"That is the final word and we are happy."
