Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted that he is “very happy” at Real Madrid after expressing contempt for “absolutely false” media reports about him.
The No 7 scored a career-best 61 goals last season, but his achievements were overshadowed by Los Blancos’ failure to win any major silverware, a perceived disintegration from his teammates, his controversial 30th birthday party and the public nature of his break-up with Irina Shayk.
However, he took time out of his holiday in Miami on Saturday to set the record straight regarding his future at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“I haven’t spoken to the media lately. I’ve made an exception for A Bola just to say that the news with the intention of creating a conflict between Real Madrid and I is absolutely false,” he told A Bola.
“I’m very happy at the world’s biggest and most-supported club and confident that next season will be full of success.
“I repeat once again that I’m at the best club in the world and it’s at the best club in the world where I want to start winning again.
“I’d sincerely ask [the Press] to stop with the false news and afford me a little peace. Real Madrid and I are very happy with each other.”
