'CR7 not welcome' - Atletico fans protest potential Ronaldo deal

Atletico Madrid fans have protested against the potential signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, with banners expressing their displeasure at the prospect of the former Real Madrid forward joining during a pre-season friendly.

Atletico Madrid have ruled out a move for Ronaldo, along with Bayern Munich, but that didn't stop some supporters displaying banners as third-tier Numancia were beaten 4-0 at the Estadio Municipal de El Burgo de Osma on Wednesday.

Atletico's core fanbase said the Portuguese star does not fit with the club's ethos with a banner behind the goal unfurled with the message 'CR7 NOT WELCOME' during the pre-season friendly.

Ronaldo held talks over his Manchester United future with boss Erik ten Hag on Tuesday. The 37-year-old arrived at United's Carrington training ground with his agent Jorge Mendes on Tuesday morning for talks.
