Ancelotti: CR7 Is The Man

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti insists that Cristiano Ronaldo is the main man at the club following his double in their 3-1 win over Chelsea in the International Champions Cup.

Los Blancos handed former boss Jose Mourinho a 3-1 defeat, with Ronaldo continuing his unreal goalscoring form at the club since joining from Manchester United in 2009.

The Portugal international has been surrounded by speculation this summer though, with the player yet to sign a new contract, but Ancelotti remains confident that Ronaldo will stay at the club.

"Ronaldo is the man for Real Madrid. He is very important to us," Ancelotti was quoted as saying on the club's official website.

"I think that if Ronaldo performs, the coach's job is easier.

"He scores lots of goals, is very important and I am happy to be coaching him. He is professional, focused and very motivated."

Reports claim that United and Paris Saint-Germain are both monitoring the situation while it is also suggested that the attacker is on the brink of signing a new deal which would make him the best paid player in Spain.
