Ronaldo: I miss United, but…

Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that he misses life in the Premier League, but has asserted that he is happy currently in Spain.

The 28-year-old has been continually linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu amid reports that he is stalling on contract negotiations with Los Blancos, still unhappy with the club.

One club rumoured to be interested in making a move for the Portuguese is former side Manchester United.

“I really miss English football. I had one of my best years at Manchester United,” today conceded Ronaldo during a visit to Singapore where he is taking part in a mentoring scheme for young footballers.

“Everyone knows that it is a club that is still in my heart.

“I miss them but now my life is in Spain, I love playing there too, part of my life is there.

“In the future you never know, but I am very happy in the Spanish League right now.”

Ronaldo, who was pictured during his trip to a Singapore secondary school being shown a video of his time when at United, was asked of Barcelona’s capture of Neymar.

“I just think about my team, Real Madrid. I do not care if one, two, three or four players are bought. That means nothing to me.

“Barcelona has bought a very good player, they have an excellent team. But I play for Real Madrid, the best team in the world.

“I’m playing with the best players, so I do not care much about what Barcelona do. I just try to focus on my team, Real Madrid.”
