Ronaldo dismisses Real exit rumours...as United fans plan plane plea for star to 'come home'
Cristiano Ronaldo has dismissed rumours linking him with a return to Manchester United - just as a group of Red Devils fans are preparing to fly a message at his next game asking him to "come home".
The Real Madrid star's future has been under speculation in recent weeks after he questioned the La Liga giants' decision to sell key players like Angel di Maria and Xabi Alonso this season.
He has also made no secret of his desire for a return to Old Trafford, with current United boss Louis van Gaal expressing his admiration for the Portuguese forward.
However, Ronaldo has now quashed such talk after he claimed that he was content with life in the Spanish capital.
Future is Madrid
Speaking to the media after leading the European Champions to a 5-1 triumph over Elche with a four-goal salvo in La Liga, the 29-year-old said: "They are all speculations about my future.
"My future is Madrid. I'm happy this season is going well and my future, I will not speak about, it does not make sense."
Ronaldo's declaration, however, will fall on deaf ears for one group of United supporters, who are planning on flying a plane with a plea for the ex-United star to "come home" at his next match against Villarreal.
Oli Grandidge, founder of the United Reel group behind the stunt, said: "United Reel has supporters on every continent of the world and we are all united by our love for Cristiano, both as a football player and as a person.
"We stand united in our views and we won't stop until we bring Ronaldo home!"
Judging by Ronaldo's statement, however, it seems like Mr Grandidge and his fellow fans from United Reel might have to wait a while...
