Manchester United Transfer Rumors: Ronaldo Coy On Real Madrid Future

By Staff Reporter, Posted: 05/03/13 04:42AM EDT

Former Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo spoke of his future with Real Madrid Wednesday, asserting that he wants to continue winning at any club he plays for.

"I have two more years on my contract and I'm not worried about my renewal," Ronaldo told Marca, adding, "I want to continue winning wherever."

Ronaldo's future has been the subject of much speculation with rumors of a return to Manchester United. It is believed that United, in an attempt to secure the funds to purchase Ronaldo, have contacted their major sponsors Chevrolet and Nike to help with finances.

Ronaldo was also quick to insist that his future is not dependent of the departing Jose Mourinho, who seems set to join Chelsea next season. Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso has been strongly linked with a move to Chelsea to continue his professional relationship with Mourinho. Ronaldo refuses to be drawn into such speculation.

 "I do not care if Mourinho continues or not, I care about myself and Real Madrid," Ronaldo continued.

The fallout from Madrid's Champions League exit at the hands of Borussia Dortmund has been immense. It prompted Jose Mourinho to make comments about his desire to leave and has forced the media to prematurely look at next season. Ronaldo regrets his team's exit in the competition, especially considering they were only one goal away from progression.

"We could have scored three goals that would have changed the game," Ronaldo laments. "We didn't do it. We knew that if we scored early it would change the game because Borussia Dortmund had no initiative".

Madrid have been left to rue a disappointing first-leg performance, where a 4-1 defeat to Dortmund in Germany left a mountain to climb in the return fixture.

 "We shouldn't have lost by that score," Ronaldo said. "But we go with our heads high and giving thanks to the fans."

Ronaldo's future, much like that of Alonso and Mourinho, will continue to be the subject of transfer rumors throughout the summer. It is likely he will not renew his Real Madrid contract. In light of that fact, Madrid could choose to sell him this summer to recoup a sizeable transfer fee.
