Cristiano Ronaldo has addressed speculation he could be set to quit Real Madrid and return to Man Utd during this summer’s transfer window.
There has been speculation the 30-year-old is unhappy at the Bernabeu after a trophyless season and the club’s sacking of manager Carlo Ancelotti.
He’s been linked with a return to Old Trafford - six years after leaving for a world record fee - and Paris Saint-Germain. The Portugal forward has refused to speak to the press since March.
But he chose to talk to Portuguese newspaper A Bola to clarify his future at Real Madrid and insist he’s happy at ‘the best club in the world’.
Ronaldo said: “I haven’t spoken to the media lately. I’ve made an exception for A Bola just to say that the news with the intention of creating a conflict between Real Madrid and I is absolutely false.
“I’m very happy at the world’s biggest and most-supported club and confident that next season will be full of success. I repeat once again that I’m at the best club in the world and it’s at the best club in the world where I want to start winning again.
“I’d sincerely ask to stop with the false news and afford me a little peace. Real Madrid and I are very happy with each other.”
Ronaldo spent six seasons at Manchester United before his £80m move to the Bernabeu in 2009. He scored 84 goals in 196 United appearances. At Real he has scored 225 goals in 200 games.
