Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo Transfer News

Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale has spoken out amid speculation a sensational move to Manchester United could still be on the cards.

Cristiano Ronaldo's former teammate Michel Salgado believes the star striker will not leave Real Madrid for a fellow European heavyweight.

"It happened with Beckham, with other Englishmen who came to Spain".

"I don't see Ronaldo with another shirt, at least in top football", quoted Salgado as saying at the Star Sixes tournament, where he is representing Spain.

"Maybe he will retire in Real Madrid, and or maybe he is then going to try another league like the US, or something like that".

Salgado has played with Ronaldo at Real in 2009 for a brief period before joining English Premier League (EPL) club Blackburn Rovers.

'Look, yesterday I found out that Romelu Lukaku had signed for Manchester United...

"I'm going to try and have my best season, of course, and if I respect the injuries I will have a great season".

"The truth is that I do not read any of that", Bale said.

Salgado also feels that it would be tough for Ronaldo, who helped Real to clinch La Liga and Champions League in 2016-17, get any better.

Nevertheless, he's still managed to win seven major honours with the Spanish giants, including three Champions League titles in four years. Right now, he is our soul. But Salgado added that the forward has become more of a big-game player in recent seasons.

"I think that is the thing that he learnt in the a year ago. he was ready to be Cristiano Ronaldo when we needed, in the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final".

"I found it hard to stay fit last season due to the pain". He is doing really well under the manager, and is physically very good.
