Marseille rule themselves out of making Cristiano Ronaldo transfer with brutal comments about the Man Utd legend

MARSEILLE president Pablo Longoria has ruled out a move for wantaway Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

The French club were linked with a move for the 37-year-old in the summer when he wanted out of Old Trafford after United failed to qualify for the Champions League.

However, Marseille turned down the chance to sign the 700 club-goal man, joining a long list of Europe’s top teams to do so.

Ronaldo is still having issues at United with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner at odds with boss Erik ten Hag.

He also finds himself stuck on the substitutes bench and refused to come on as a substitute in Wednesday’s 2-0 win over Tottenham.

As a result, he was banished from the squad for this weekend’s trip to Stamford Bridge.

Despite this, Marseille are still not keen on the prospect of signing Ronaldo, with club president Longoria slamming the ex-Real Madrid ace saying “we prefer team players”.

Speaking to RMC Sport, as quoted by A BOLA, Longoria said: “Football is very easy and you have to do what you can with the means you have at your disposal, always maintaining financial stability. 

“Marseille need a balanced economic situation and we are a long way from being able to count on players like that, with great stars. 

“We prefer team players, who put the individual at the service of the collective. 

“We have a project where all the players work for the team.”

SunSport exclusively revealed Ten Hag wants Ronaldo GONE.

Ronaldo was forced to train on his own on Friday and will not be allowed to re-join the first-team squad until after their next match.

He is also facing a staggering £720,000 fine — two weeks’ wages — for defying his manager.
