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

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 Saint-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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
