Cape Town - Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has expressed his dismay at the news that a Chinese Super League club made an offer of £257 million for Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to Ronaldo's representative, super-agent Jorge Mendes, the Portugal international was offered a deal worth a staggering £86 million a year.
However, Mendes was also quick to point out that Ronaldo had no interest in the move, despite the astronomical sums of money on offer in China.
Having recently sanctioned midfielder Oscar's £52m move to Shanghai SIPG, Conte was asked for his thoughts on Carlos Tevez following suit, as well as the big-money offer for Ronaldo.
"I think it's an incredible story," Conte told reporters. "We are talking about a lot, lot, lot of money.
"I don't want to trust in this. I don't want to believe in this, because, I think, we are talking about an amount of money which is not right."
He continued: "I saw the last contract, the last contract with Carlos Tevez.
"I think we are talking about a lot of money. This type of offer is incredible, and it's very difficult for the players to say 'no'.
"But I must be honest, I think it's not right. You must have respect for the money. I don't agree with this situation."
