Elber: Ronaldo's not stupid; he'll want Lewandowski at Real Madrid

Former Bayern Munich star Giovane Elber has scoffed at claims Cristiano Ronaldo would block Real Madrid's move for Robert Lewandowski.

It's been claimed in Spain that Ronaldo is urging Real president Florentino Perez to drop his interest in the Bayern Munich striker as it would threaten his own place in Real's XI.

But Elber has dismissed the reports, insisting: "Cristiano Ronaldo is not stupid. Everyone wants a player like Robert on his team.

"If they have the opportunity to remove Lewandowski from Bayern Munich they will do their best to do it. But Bayern is aware and Lewandowski feels very good with his family here in Munich. He knows he has everything in Bayern.

"I hope he stays with us for a long time."
