Despite seeing their names bandied about in the January transfer window, two of the more talked-about players in Europe are going nowhere.
Ronaldo has been subject to Manchester United return speculation any time there has been tumult at the Bernabeu — which is quite often under president Florentino Perez — but Zidane has squashed the latest buzz.
“Cristiano is more than non-transferable,” added the Frenchman.
“He is the soul of the team. He’s going nowhere.”
As for the big Englishman as White Hart Lane, who’s been tipped for a move to Real Madrid oddly enough, Pochettino says, “No way.”
“He is not for sale and the good thing is he wants to stay.”
Of the two, a Ronaldo sale would be less surprising, as United always has money to spend and the aging Portuguese will see his transfer value continue to dip.
Kane is an in-form man on a historic club in a massive city that only stands to get richer. After the Gareth Bale sale, you’d have to think Daniel Levy and company would know the risks of launching a superstar into space for money.
