Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed he is "very happy" at Manchester United despite being again linked with a move to Real Madrid.
Comments from Real director Pedro Trapote have been greeted with disdain at Old Trafford, Sir Alex Ferguson claiming 'I wouldn't sell them a virus' following his team's 5-3 Club World Cup victory over Gamba Osaka.
Ronaldo said: "I don't care what people are saying."
He added: "I have not read it. I am here in Japan and I know nothing about what is going on around me.
"But I am very happy playing for Manchester United."
After the intense speculation that surrounded him last summer, it seems Ronaldo must once again get used to being the centre of attention.
The Ballon D'Or winner preferred to talk about his goalscoring contribution to United's latest triumph.
After heading home a Ryan Giggs corner in first-half stoppage time, Ronaldo has moved into double figures for the season.
As he prepares to be confirmed as the best player in the world at a glitzy FIFA ceremony next month, Ronaldo confirmed life at the moment is going well.
"It would mean a lot for me to be a world champion," he said. "It would be fantastic to win this trophy - and now there is a good chance, not just from a personal perspective but for Manchester United."
