Spanish Valencia is after Cristiano Ronaldo

Unofficial Spanish news assure that Valencia's president Soler will go for Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo. They want to sign the player because of his fantastis soccer skills.

He assured: "Until they tell us no several times we will not give up. At the moment it's a priority and we have until 31 August."

In fact, Ronaldo has been linked with a move to Real Madrid. But Manchester United have stressed the player is going nowhere.

Soler, who has already signed Fernando Morientes and Asier Del Horno from the Premiership, is not going to give up: "First we will negotiate with the English club and then the player."

Portuguese Ronaldo's future has been in doubt this summer after he was quoted as saying he wanted a move to Spain after his World Cup incident with Wayne Rooney.

And according to people of the club, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists the winger is going nowhere.

Indeed, last week Ferguson expressed: "Without any question, Ronaldo will be our player next season and for the rest of his contract.

"I admit that I haven't paid much attention to what Cristiano is supposed to have said about his future.

We must mention that Ronaldo, who joined Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon for £12.24m in August 2003, is under contract until 2010.

Manchester United will not sale Cristiano Ronaldo

Portugal's World Cup greatest player Cristiano Ronaldo is not for sale, according to his English club Manchester United.

"The club confirms that there is no possibility of Cristiano being sold," United said in a statement. "Cristiano recently signed a new deal until 2010 and the club fully expects him to honour that contract," the statement posted on the club's official Web site said.

"The team board will not listen to any offers for Cristiano."

In fact, British newspapers have speculated that Ronaldo might want a move away after at least partially blaming the 21-year-old for the sending-off of his club team mate Wayne Rooney in Portugal's World Cup clash against England.

According to those newspapers, Ronaldo is linked with a move to Real Madrid, quoting the Spanish giants' new coach Fabio Capello as being interested in the 21-year-old.

"Manchester United has noted the increasing media speculation over the possible trade of Cristiano Ronaldo," the statement continued.

"We all know that Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the brightest young stars in world football as demonstrated by his performances at the World Cup in Germany and Manchester United is not in the business of selling their best young players."

We must remember that Portugal beat England on penalties, then lost their semi-final 1-0 to France.

Cristiano Ronaldo wants to move away from Manchester

Portugal talented player Cristiano Ronaldo has said he sees no future for himself at Manchester United and wants to sign for a Spanish club as soon as possible.

"I'm not going to stay at Manchester United," Ronaldo was quoted as saying in a newspaper.

It's very important to mention that Ronaldo said the aftermath of the incident with club mate Wayne Rooney during Portugal's World Cup win over England made it impossible for him to remain at United.

"After what happened with Rooney I can't remain there. I will soon have my future sorted out and I want to go to Real," the player expressed.

Portuguese newspaper Record quoted Ronaldo as saying: "To be honest it has been difficult to think about continuing in England. They're making a storm in a teacup. It's really hard to return to a country where you're not welcome."

Another rumour says that wanted to quit the Premier League but leaving open the possibility of moving to Real's arch-rivals Barcelona.

In fact, Cristiano Ronaldo joined United from Sporting in 2003 for $20.63m. He signed a contract extension last November that tied him to the club until 2010.
