Ronnie Denies Move Claims

Ronaldo, twice a World Cup winner, claims to be fed up with the way the press speak about him. Speaking in Spanish newspaper Marca, he said "I was in England to take some photos with a company that sponsors me and there was nothing strange about the trip.

"People invent a lot of things about my life and I am sick of rumours. It annoys me that so many bad things are made up about me, because I don't think I create many myself - I have never seen anyone invent anything positive.

"I have no idea why people should make things up, all I do is play football and try to help Real Madrid win their games and hope that people like me.

"I have no thoughts about leaving Real Madrid, I am delighted to be here; it's the best club on the planet. We have the best team in the world and I love the city."

I think that clears things up, but didn't Seba Veron and Hernan Crespo both say they weren't interested in Chelsea. £30 million later and it's a different story....
