Cristiano Ronaldo still insists he loves United and loves being booed all over the country. Real Madrid are allegedly still interested in him but for now it looks like he wants to stay.

‘I like people whistling and booing,’ Ronaldo told Zoo magazine.

‘It’s normal for fans to do that. There’s nothing I can do and it doesn’t matter anyway. I have to concentrate on the game, so I don’t think about that sort of thing.’

But of course it’s not the chief reason why he’s happy at United – it’s because of the trophies.

‘I’m at a club that guarantees trophies and that makes me happy. When we compete for a cup, we know we can win it.

‘Last year we did the double of Premier League and Champions League and this year we have a chance to win five.

‘We’re doing well in all competitions and it would be incredible if we could win them all. We have to continue working as we have been.’

So why exactly would he leave for Real Madrid, a club that simply can’t get past the last 16 of the Champions League? (Their last appearance in the quarter-finals came in 2003…)
