Cristiano Ronaldo kills United and Chelsea transfer rumors – would vote himself for Ballon d'Or
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo declares he isn’t concerned with transfer rumors linking him with a move to the Champions League winning side Chelsea and his former club Manchester United.
Cristiano Ronaldo admits he is used to speculation suggesting he is on the brink of moving into another big club. In an interview to France Football, the Portugal international said that he was wasn’t leaving Real Madrid any time soon.
The 27-year-old said that he was happy with his stay in Spain and has no reason to leave Real Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo told France Football that he was strengthening his career and making records, hence he saw no good reason to leave behind all of the success he has recorded at Real Madrid.
Cristiano Ronaldo moved from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009 for a record breaking transfer fee of £80 million. Since then Manchester United has been dreaming about the day when they will see Cristiano Ronaldo playing in Old Trafford once again. Chelsea, who is ready to pay big, has also been interested in signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
“I play for the passion I have for football and for the love of the teams I represent,” Cristiano Ronaldo told France Football. “If I played for money, I would be at another club.
“All players love it when teams like Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United or Chelsea are linked to about them.
“Moving is not something I am thinking about though. I am happy at Real Madrid and I want to stay here and win things.
“What happens in the future is in the lap of the Gods. In life anything is possible and nothing is impossible, but for now I am not thinking about another club or a new contract.”
Cristiano Ronaldo has been nominated for the Ballon d’Or award once again. Cristiano Ronaldo will have to battle for honor with his Argentinean rival from Barcelona, Lionel Messi. The Argentina international Lionel Messi won the Ballon d’Or award last year as well.
Cristiano Ronaldo suggests he would vote himself for the Ballon d’Or award if it was up to him.
“If I could I would for myself to win the Ballon d'Or,” Cristiano Ronaldo said. I am like I am and I am happy with that. To be humble is not good. In Portugal we say that to be too humble is vanity.”
