Ronaldo went through just a single year at Barca in the wake of marking from PSV Eindhoven in a then-world record bargain.
Barcelona were supposedly in converses with secure Ronaldo to a nine-year agreement and previous president Josep Lluis Nenez guaranteed the arrangement was finished.
However, Branchini had different thoughts and declared he would be taking his customer to Entomb Milan after his delivery condition of £22.26million was enacted.
Addressing Sky Sports, Branchini said:
“We had a gathering where if Barcelona had introduced us a perfect agreement, we would have marked it. If not, what do we do? There was a little dossier with groups like Lazio, Bury and Officers.
“We didn’t have anything against the restoration with Barcelona, yet we didn’t need picture [rights] contracts and convoluted circumstances.
“We would not like to go down a way that would jeopardize the fate of the main part on the planet. He needed to get into battles that didn’t concern him.”
