Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed he will follow the example of his Portugal manager Luiz Felipe Scolari and seize a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Scolari will take over at Chelsea next month having decided midway through the country´s European Championship campaign he wanted to move back into club management, while Ronaldo - who has been the subject of long-standing interest from Real Madrid - said he cannot pass up a "great opportunity".

"It [moving to Real] is a dream, a step forward, you can call it what you want," Ronaldo said in The Times. "For me it is a great opportunity and, as Scolari says, that train passes by only once and we have to take advantage of it."
