Real Valladoid owner Ronaldo Nazario: I considered English clubs

Real Valladoid owner Ronaldo Nazario says buying into AC Milan was never an option.

Ronaldo has insisted that Milan were never an option.

“There were proposals in Italy, England and Portugal," he told Sky Sport Italia. “There were some very interesting opportunities but I chose Valladolid.

“I can't tell you which ones in Italy due to confidentiality agreements, but nobody spoke to me about Milan.

“They were out of my budget. I have to say that everything I've done, I've done on my own, as many people say that it's someone backing me, or a Chinese group.

“That isn't the case. It's just me with my finances. I made this investment alone."
