Cristiano Ronaldo has refused to be drawn on speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United, insisting his sole focus this season is winning a trophy with Real Madrid, according to Manchester Evening Standard.

The 28-year-old has been in superb form for Jose Mourinho's side this season, but revealed his "unhappiness" with his situation at the club earlier this term.

But, at a ceremony to receive the Alfredo Di Stefano Trophy, Ronaldo refused to speculate on what lies ahead at the end of the current campaign.

"Much remains," said Ronaldo. "We are in the cup final and we have taken a major step in the Champions League.

The Portugal international instead choose to focus on his hopes for the rest of the season with Madrid.

"The league is difficult but we must fight to the end. Things personally with me are going well but what I want is to win a major trophy with Madrid."

Ronaldo received the award presented by Spanish newspaper Marca for the best player in La Liga last season.

On receiving the award for Real Madrid goalscoring legend Di Stefano, Ronaldo said: "It is an honour to receive this award from the hands of Alfredo Di Stefano and I want to thank everyone."

But the Portuguese forward has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu. A return to Manchester United has been mooted, while Paris St Germain are another team in the mix.

The Ligue 1 leaders are one of the few teams in the world with the spending power to sign Ronaldo, and the French club could be set for a summer showdown with United if Real Madrid decide to sell Ronaldo.

The reasons for Ronaldo's early season "unhappiness" were never publicly revealed, but with progression into the quarter-finals in the Champions League and a upturn of form in La Liga, the former-United star seems to be back on top form - on the pitch at least.
