Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has told talkSPORT that the European champions would be making a "big mistake" if they let Cristiano Ronaldo depart this summer.

Perez's first task after being reelected unopposed as Real Madrid president on Monday will be to appease Ronaldo amid speculation the four-time world player of the year wants to leave. "I have a good relationship with him after working together for eight years".

Rio Ferdinand hopes Manchester United can complete a sensational deal to take Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford.

Perez found out about Ronaldo's anger through the front cover of Portuguese newspaper A Bola, but has not spoken to him since his man-of-the-match display in the Champions League final win against Juventus.

However, Perez said that he had not spoken to Ronaldo, who is on duty for Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, which ends on July 2.

Who do you think Real could replace Ronaldo with if he does leave the club?

The truce that went into effect Saturday came after some of the worst fighting in months between rebels and pro-government forces. The ministry also called on the United States military to provide a full account of why it chose to shoot down the Syrian SU-22.

Perez's radio interview came hours after the 70-year-old businessman was reelected to a fifth four-year term as Madrid's president.

And among the first issues he will have to deal with is Ronaldo - who he bought in 2009 from Manchester United for a record 94 million euros ($105.3 million).

Italy's "Gazzetta dello Sport" had speculated that Bayern is set to swoop for Ronaldo so he can link up with the German club's former Real coach Carlo Ancelotti.

"We are accustomed to intensive speculation on possible arrivals and departures during the transfer period", wrote Rummenigge in the statement. "We've not received offers for him (Ronaldo), Morata or James".

"As a rule, we do not comment on these rumours".
