AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi's dream of signing Cristiano Ronaldo is 'pure fantasy', according to Real Madrid's market consultant Ernesto Bronzetti.
Ronaldo, a world record £80million signing at the Bernabeu from Manchester United in 2009, has attracted the interest of Rossoneri supremo Berlusconi, who says bringing him to the San Siro would be 'a dream'.
But Bronzetti insists Real chairman Florentino Perez has no intention of selling the Portugal ace, and says an Italy move is out of the question at this time.
He told Radio Mana Mana: "Cristiano Ronaldo to AC Milan? It's pure fantasy.
"At the moment Perez has absolutely no desire to sell Ronaldo.
"Berlusconi likes beautiful things, as I'm aware, but now it is not possible.
"In a few years, who knows."
Meanwhile, Bronzetti says out-of-favour Real midfielder Fernando Gago could join Roma after being heavily linked with the Serie A club.
But he insists neither Gago nor fellow midfielder Kaka will not be sold as part of a bid for Roma man Daniele de Rossi, as some reports have suggested.
"Fernando Gago was already put on the market last year," added Bronzetti.
"I think that his move to Roma could materialise, but not in exchange for De Rossi.
"I talked to Perez about this situation and he reiterated that De Rossi does not interest us.
"As a result, I also exclude a possible exchange with Kaka.
"Real Madrid are already well covered in that position with players such as Xabi Alonso and Lassana Diarra."
