Ronaldo rejects Real speculation

Published Add your comment

Cristiano Ronaldo has once again reaffirmed he is "at the right club" amid fresh speculation over his Manchester United future.

Neither the player nor his manager Sir Alex Ferguson were happy that the issue was raised again ahead of Tuesday night's Champions League tie with FC Porto.

Ferguson wondered aloud "how many times" more he would have to endure this line of questioning before describing the continued speculation as "pathetic". Ronaldo shrugged and said: "We always have this question."

The 23-year-old simply repeated the position he has stuck to since reaffirming his commitment to United last summer after a face-to-face meeting with Ferguson appeared to stop the rumblings linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

"I am happy at this club. I think it is the right club," said Ronaldo.

It has once again been suggested a deal has been done between United and Real for the transfer of the 2008 European and World Player of the Year this summer.

Ronaldo played a major role in taking United back to the top of the Barclays Premier League on Sunday with his two-goal haul against Aston Villa that took his seasonal tally to 20.

United are now a point ahead of Liverpool, with a game in hand.

"We are the best team in England," Ronaldo said.

"We have shown that by being top of the table. That speaks for itself. We respect all our opponents but if we carry on winning, we will win the title again."
