Barcelona play down Ronaldo rumours

Barcelona vice-president Ferran Soriano has insisted the Catalan giants have made no approach to sign Cristiano Ronaldo.

Manchester United's brilliant Portugal winger has reportedly become a major transfer target of both Barcelona and their major Primera Liga rivals Real Madrid.

Even though both Sir Alex Ferguson and United chief executive David Gill have rejected any notion of the 21-year-old being sold, rumours of a summer move persist, with a fee in the region of £45million being mentioned.

The speculation was only heightened on Tuesday when Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes was seen meeting Barca's sporting director Txiki Begiristain at a plush London hotel before they sat next to each other at the Emirates Stadium when Ronaldo skippered Portugal to a famous win over Brazil.

However, the Catalans have moved quickly to distance themselves from talk of a move for the United man, with Soriano indicating Barca were already well served for attacking players.

'Jorge Mendes is the agent for many of our players, including Deco, so this meeting does not mean anything,' Soriano told the BBC.

'There has been no approach to the player or Manchester United.

'In general terms, we do like to sign the best players in the world but we already have Ronaldinho, Samuel Eto'o and Lionel Messi in this type of position.'

Begiristain himself said: 'Of course, it is logical that we are interested in Ronaldo, but I must stress we are a big club and we will work in the proper way.'
