Real Madrid's director of sport, Jorge Valdano, has denied that the club will be listening to offers for David Beckham or Ronaldo this summer.

With Real expected to embark on a massive rebuilding programme, the England captain and Brazil strikers have been reported to be thoughtdispensable, but Valdano said: "Beckham is not going to leave, we are very happy with him. He has had his personal problems, which are connected to the fact that he is a special player for the press, but he has generally played at a high level and his signing has been a success.

"We have high hopes for him next season," he said. As for Ronaldo, Valdano said: "There is nothing in that story, it's all rumours and Ronaldo will continue at Madrid."
