Ronaldo pledges his future to United

Thursday, January 1, 2009

Despite continued speculation he will leave Manchester United for Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo insists that he is happy where he is right now.

Ronaldo had a phenomenal season for United last year, scoring 42 goals in all competitions to held the Red Devils to Premier League and Champions League triumphs.

That form led Los Blancos to pursue the Portuguese star in a lengthy transfer saga last summer, which angered United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

However, Ronaldo's future at Old Trafford was once again put in to question last month when Real director Pedro Trapote said that his club have a deal in place to sign the Ballon d’Or winner at the end of this season.

Ronaldo, though, has reiterated that the claim is false.

He told MUTV: "There's always speculation, not just about me, but about the future of players all around the world.

"People were speaking about me this summer but that was normal because of what I did during the season.

"What people are saying now (that there is a deal in place to take him to Real Madrid) is not true.

"Who says that is a liar because I am happy at the club, I want to stay here. I feel at home here. I feel very happy here."

Ronaldo went on to reveal that he felt under pressure to impress after a summer of rumours, but was not worried that fans would turn against him.

He added: "I think the people don't forget quickly what you do for the club.

"When I arrived at the stadium, to play (my first game of this season) against Villarreal, I felt a little bit of pressure.

"But the fans were very good and this is why I feel the Manchester United supporters are amazing.

"I love the fans because they have been brilliant with me, not just this season but every season. Like I said before, I feel at home in Manchester."
