“We were interested in him.We discussed with his staff but he preferred to extend with Manchester City. It may be difficult to find an agreement now. He is the highest paid coach in the world.

Ronaldo also revealed the other names that are in the fray for managing Brazil and those include Jorge Jesus and Jorge Sampaoli.
