Cristiano Ronaldo vows to reveal truth about his situation as he addresses ‘media lies’ over Manchester United future amid fresh Atletico Madrid claims


Cristiano Ronaldo says he’ll do an interview in the coming weeks to tell the truth about this summer’s transfer speculation.

The Manchester United star has been a mainstay on the back pages in recent months after it emerged that he was looking to leave the club following their failure to qualify for the Champions League.

This led to uncertainty over his situation, including a spell training on his own in Portugal, missing United’s pre-season trip to Australia and then attracting criticism for leaving the club’s pre-season clash with Rayo Vallecano at half-time after being brought off at Old Trafford.

Since then the 37-year-old was a second half substitute in Man United’s season opener against Brighton, before starting in the 4-0 hammering against Brentford at the weeekend.

While no serious interest has emerged for Ronaldo over the course of the summer, clubs such as Chelsea, Sporting Lisbon and Atletico Madrid have emerged as potential destinations for the forward.

In a post on Instagram, it was suggested by journalist Edu Aguirre that Atletico are in fact interested in the player, but a move is unlikely due to the reaction of supporters if their interest is made public.

Ronaldo vehemently denied that claim with a frank comment that suggested that he firmly disagrees with the media’s reporting of his situation this summer.

Replying to a post on Instagram, Ronaldo’s translated comment said: “You’ll know the truth when I give an interview in a few weeks.

“The media only tells lies.

“I have a book of notes and in the last few months out of 100 news stories they only got five right, imagine how things are.

“Here’s a tip for you.”
