Ronaldo's transfer saga continues to hit the headlines, with several reports linking the Manchester United icon with a shock move to Atletico Madrid.
The 37-year-old had earlier this month reportedly made his desire to leave Old Trafford this summer and play Champions League football.
The Portuguese icon's super-agent, Jorge Mendes, has reportedly spoken to Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Napoli and Bayern Munich, but they have all decided against signing Ronaldo. Reports add that Mendes is still upbeat about the rumoured transfer.
