Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly against Real Madrid signing Paris Saint-Germain star Marco Verratti.
Verratti has established himself as one of the best midfielders in Europe in recent years.
But Spanish outlet Diario Gol claims Ronaldo doesn’t want Madrid to sign him.
It is said that the former Manchester United star harbours doubts over Verratti’s mentality.
The midfielder has a taste for the nightlife and Ronaldo is concerned his arrival could deal a blow to Madrid’s hopes of winning silverware in the future.
Antoine Griezmann has sensationally hinted he would be open to a move to Real Madrid.
Express Sport understands the France international is Manchester United’s No 1 transfer target for the summer.
But Griezmann has hinted that Real, as well as Barcelona and Bayern Munich, would be the dream.
“Could I play for Real Madrid or Barcelona in the future? Why not,” Griezmann told Spanish newspaper Marca.
“It is every player’s dream to play for a big club like those two or for Bayern Munich.
“But I cannot see myself at Barca or Madrid at this stage, nor at any other club. I am happy where I am now.”
Liverpool ace Phiippe Coutinho has rejected Real Madrid because he wants to sign for Barcelona, according to reports.
The Brazil international is wanted by both La Liga giants.
But Spanish outlet Don Balon claims the playmaker has knocked back an approach from Madrid.
The 24-year-old would reportedly rather move to Barcelona to link up with compatriot and close friend Neymar.
