Cristiano Ronaldo Responds To Real Madrid Exit Rumours
Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who has struggled in LaLiga this season, has finally responded to reports that he wants to leave the club.
Reports in Spain claim that the Portuguese was hoping leave the club in the January transfer window, with Manchester United reportedly one his destinations.
The 32-year-old, who has only netted six goals in LaLiga this season, reveals he wants to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu.
"I've been in this city since 2009 and I love the climate and the people," Ronaldo was quoted as saying by AS.
"It’s close to Portugal and you can get there by car. Spain is a great country, I love it. Of course, I want to stay here, I love this club."
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner also shared his thoughts on Los Blancos' disappointing 2017/2018 season.
"Last season was incredible, but it was also the best," he said. "This year we didn’t start so well, we're not going well in LaLiga, the team was knocked out of the Copa del Rey.
"We're not happy. Real Madrid the club isn't happy, we're not happy with it.
"But you also know football changes so much, so we need to keep motivated and work hard because we've still got the chance to win the Champions League and the World Cup starts after that.
"Our goal is to win the Champions League, because it's the biggest prize. However, we are somewhat disappointed, we haven't been at the required level."
