Ronaldo: I'm Staying At Real. For Now

Cristiano Ronaldo has poured cold water on the speculation linking him to an imminent return to Manchester United, or a move to PSG.

The rumour mill has enjoyed guessing CR7’s likely destination, ever since he expressed his ‘sadness’ with life at Real Madrid a few months ago.

However, in an interview conducted with fifa.com at last week’s Ballon d’Or ceremony and published today, Ronaldo insists that he is not looking to quit the Bernabeu before his contract expires in 2015.

However, the world’s second best player admits that he does not know what his future holds, after his Real days are over.

"I want to see out my contract at Real Madrid: I'm very clear about that,” Ronaldo said.

“After that, well, I don't know what'll happen in the future."  

The Portuguese superstar was pivotal in Real’s march to victory in La Liga last season, and he remains their most important player.

It is no surprise that they could only crawl to a draw against Osasuna without him last weekend.

And with Los Blancos seemingly out of contention  in the league just halfway through the season, CR7 is even more determined to help them win their 10th European Cup.

Real face Ronaldo’s former club United in the next round of the Champions League. And having committed his immediate future to his current paymasters, the Red Devils should probably fear the return of Ronaldo.

"Every Madridista wants that 10th European Cup – we're more than aware of that," Ronaldo said.

"Last season we fell just short, which was very frustrating. Fortunately we've got the opportunity to set the record straight this year, though the fact we face Manchester United next makes it more difficult.

"It's not going to be easy and I reckon the odds are about 50-50, but I'm still very confident."
