“But still nothing close, nothing progressing, still no bid, so it’s just a conversation. At the moment, Atletico Madrid are busy with different topics.
“For example, they want a new right-back. They have to do many things and so the moment for Ronaldo they had a conversation with Mendes to speak about many things. Mendes is one of the best agents in the world with many clients, but nothing imminent for Cristiano Ronaldo to Atletico as of today.
