Real Madrid president denies huge Cristiano Ronaldo offer from China

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has denied agent Jorge Mendes' claim that a Chinese Super League club had made a €300 million offer for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Mendes said an unnamed club had contacted both Madrid and Ronaldo and offered the player more than €100m a year in wages -- an offer that had been rejected because "money is not everything."

Madrid had not commented officially on the claim until Perez was asked about it by Spanish radio show "El Transistor" on Monday and said: "Real Madrid received no offer.

"It is possible [something happened] as there have been many people interested over these years in signing Cristiano Ronaldo.

"But Madrid have received no such offer. Sometimes it can happen that people talk on the margins, away from the club."
