The Old Trafford boss believes the Portuguese superstar is just angling for more money from Real Madrid as he threatens to quit Spain.

Ronaldo dropped a bombshell last week when it emerged he wanted out after being accused of a £13m tax fraud.

And with claims of his potential departure from the Bernabeu having gone into overdrive, an emotional second stint at United has been talked up.

But a source close to Mourinho revealed a sensational fifa coins return was NOT going to happen.

Asked if Mourinho expected Ronaldo to head back, a United insider said: “No. Ronaldo wants only money from Real, nothing more.”

Ronaldo - who spent six years at United before his then world-record £80m move to the La Liga giants in 2009 - only signed a new megabucks five-year deal with Real Madrid in November.

That bumper pay rise helped Ronaldo, 32, become the best-paid sportsmen in the world.

Cristiano Ronaldo is only holding out for more money from Real Madrid

The four-times Ballon D’Or forward has scored a club-record 406 goals in his 394 appearances for Real.

Reports have varied about the value Real have placed on Ronaldo, with a fee of between £131m and £350m being mooted.

But German giants Bayern Munich, potential suitors for his signature, have ruled themselves out of the running.    

Bayern instead are keen on Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez and CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: “We’re used to being the subject of intense transfer speculation during transfer windows.

“Normally we don’t comment on rumours, but in this case, we would like to make our position on Cristiano Ronaldo absolutely clear: This rumour is completely unfounded and must be consigned to the realms of fantasy.”
