Ronaldo warns press to keep off his family, private life and career
Cristiano Ronaldo, the world’s most famous footballer, has given a statement regarding his future, amid reports in Spain tying him with a return to Real Madrid.
The 36-year-old Juventus striker has a year left on his contract with the former Italian champions and has yet to inform them of his desire to go.
Juventus has not received an offer from Real Madrid or any other team, and Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo took to social media on Tuesday night, August 17, to put an end to any transfer rumours.
Ronaldo stated that his story at Real Madrid “has been written” with multiple trophies and crowns in a lengthy Instagram post while claiming that he’s just focused on the current season.
“Anyone who knows me is aware of how focused I am on my work. Less talk and more action, this has been my guiding motto since the start of my career.
“However, in view of everything that’s been said and written recently, I have to set out my position.
“More than the disrespect for me as a man and as a player, the frivolous way that my future is covered in the media is disrespectful to all the clubs involved in these rumours, as well as to their players and staff.
“My story at Real Madrid has been written. It’s been recorded. In words and numbers, in trophies and titles, in records and in headlines. It’s in the Museum at the Bernabeu Stadium and it’s also in the minds of every fan of the club.
“And beyond what I achieved, I remember that in those nine years I had a relationship of deep affection and respect for ‘merengue afición’, an affection and respect that I retain to this day, and that I will always cherish.
“I know that the true Real Madrid fans will continue to have me in their hearts, and I will have them in mine.
“As well as this most recent episode in Spain, there have been frequent news and stories associating me with a number of clubs in many different leagues, with nobody ever being concerned about trying to find out the actual truth.
“I’m breaking my silence now to say that I can’t allow people to keep playing around with my name. I remain focused on my career and in my work, committed and prepared for all the challenges that I have to face.
“Everything else? Everything else is just talk.”
Three years ago, Real Madrid transferred Ronaldo to Juventus for £100 million. Since then, he has won two Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia, as well as scoring 101 goals in 133 games for the club in all competitions.
