Atletico Madrid fans have protested the prospect of signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
Atleti fans have let their feelings known that they will not welcome the former Real Madrid star by using banners during a pre-season friendly to express their displeasure at being linked to Ronaldo.
Atletico Madrid have been linked with a summer move for Ronaldo, although United have hardened their stance that the Portuguese veteran will not be sold this summer.
The fans unfurled a banner with the message ‘CR7 NOT WELCOME’ during the pre-season friendly against third-tier side Numancia.

Atleti won the match 4-0.
Interestingly, Manchester City fans were getting giddy at the prospect of signing Ronaldo last summer, showing that they were not bothered by the fact he laid the foundations for his incredible career at Old Trafford.
For what he achieved at Real Madrid, the fans of Atleti want him nowhere near the club and I admire that.
