Cristiano Ronaldo: 'The league is difficult but we must fight to the end'

Cristiano Ronaldo has reiterated his ambition to win a trophy with Real Madrid while refusing to comment on whether he will remain at the Bernabeu.

The Portuguese has been the subject of rumours throughout the last few months that he may leave the Spanish giants with former club Manchester United and Paris St Germain both linked with the player.

The 28-year-old has been consistently scintillating and would surely win all possible accolades were it not for the existence of Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

At a ceremony to receive the Alfredo Di Stefano Trophy, awarded by Spanish newspaper Marca to the top player in La Liga last season, Ronaldo did not break his silence on what his future holds.

Instead, he spoke of his hopes for Real, who stand second in the Primera Division - although 13 points behind leaders Barcelona - with a Copa del Rey final against city rivals Atletico and Champions League last-eight clash with Galatasaray looming.

He said: "Much remains. We are in the cup final and we have taken a major step in the Champions League.

"The league is difficult but we must fight to the end.

"Things personally with me are going well but what I want is to win a major trophy with Madrid."

On receiving the award from the Real Madrid legend Di Stefano, Ronaldo added: "It is an honour to receive this award from the hands of Alfredo Di Stefano and I want to thank everyone."

Di Stefano said: "He is a great player and a team player. I am very happy."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
