Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on Sunday revealed the club have never considered a move for Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo who has not rejoined his club on their pre season tour after an extended holidays following the FIFA Confederations Cup, has been linked with a move away from Madrid this summer, with United and Paris Saint-Germain reportedly interested due to issues of tax in Spain.
‘I’m not going to waste my time thinking about players who are mission impossible,” Daily Mail quotes the United manager as saying.
“We have never thought about it because he is such an important player for his club, of great economic power.
“We have not been able to find for whatever reason that could have made us think that Ronaldo could leave.
“I am not a defender in my club once you waste time on players who are mission impossible.
The four-time Ballon d’Or winner spent six seasons at United before his move to Madrid in 2009.
Meanwhile Marcus Rashford has reflected on his brace in the game against LA Galaxy on which he scored twice and said it is good for his self confidence.
“Yeah I think it is good for your self-confidence,” Rashford told MUTV on Sunday.
“But it is still early days in pre-season and in the season as a whole. There is a lot of work to be done, as individuals and as a team still.”
“When Jesse poked it through, I knew I had time because the defender was on the wrong side of me.
“So I just had to take my time and pick where I wanted to put it in the goal. Is Jesse taking it as an assist? I think it is a tackle personally. It is definitely a tackle!
“The second goal was similar. I had a lot of time to pick my place. It is just about the finish once you get in that position. The first one gave me confidence so you then take the second one in your stride.”
