Ronaldo says he will stay on at Man UMay 22nd, 2009 - 5:44 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 22 (ANI): Cristiano Ronaldo has said that he is planning to stay on at Manchester United next season after telling a Spanish television station that he does not care about what happens at Real Madrid this summer. The Sun quoted Ronaldo as saying: “At the moment I’m only thinking about the [Champions League] final, independently of what will happen to me or my team-mates next season. I’m sure Perez would create an incredible team at Madrid but, at the moment, I’m at United and I don’t care about what happens there. I only care about what will happen next season at Manchester United.”
But despite Real’s clear desire to sign Ronaldo, United chief executive David Gill insisted earlier this week that the Premier League champions had not altered their stance.
“He is not for sale. He is a great player and he is part of our club. We made it clear last year. He is on a long-term contract with us and I can assure you that [the issue of his future] has never come up,” Gill said. (ANI)
