Cristiano Ronaldo is not for sale, insists Carlo Ancelotti

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has told Manchester United there is "no question" Cristiano Ronaldo will be moving on any time soon.

Ronaldo netted the first two goals of his new manager's reign during a 45-minute appearance in yesterday's pre-season 6-0 win at Bournemouth.

Talk soon turned to the importance of a player so revered on these shores from his time at Old Trafford - to where some have tipped him to return before long.

Former Chelsea boss Ancelotti said: "I think Ronaldo is the most important player in this team because he is the player with the best quality.

"I think we will help him every time to do his best because if he does that every time we have a great opportunity for this season.

"His future is at Real Madrid, there is no question about this."
