For all of you out there waking up (presumably very very drunk)to the news that Ronaldo MAY leave; let me put your mind at ease.
Now credit here must go to the editor over at www.redcafe.net; who has published the full post-match interviews Ronaldo gave in which he repeatedly said he wanted to stay next season, something most media sources have inexplicably left out.
Below are the full transcripts of the Interviews cited from http://www.redcafe.net/f6/transcript-ronaldos-interviews-after-cl-final-204041/
TV interview with BBC after the match and celebrations on the pitch
BBC TV presenter : Are you going to stay at Man United or are the rumours about you going to Real Madrid, are they true?
CR : I stay.
Radio interview with BBC after the match and celebrations on the pitch but before the TV interview
BBC Radio interviewer: Winning the Champions league..(muttering...).
CR : Of course, you know, this club has the opportunity to win everything. We show this season we are a great team, we are the best team in Europe, in the Premier league and next season we try to do the same again
Interviewer: Can you assure Manchester United supporters that you will be here next season?
CR : Say again?
Interviewer: Can you assure...you know, can you promise Manchester United supporters that you will be with them next season?
CR (laughing): I never promise nothing. I dont promise nothing to my mum...I dont promise nothing to the supporters
Interviewer: But, but, when you say I want...
CR (cutting off the interviewer): I want to stay, i want to stay, really...Its OK, i want to stay. But the future no one knows, but I want to stay.
Interviewer : But does there have to be a new contract or something like that?
CR : I dont know nothing..Nobody speak with me...eh...We are going to see next two weeks, OK?
Interviewer: But when you say, 'I will make a decision'....i mean...that means that?
CR (cutting off the interviewer): I dont say ' I will make a decision..I dont say...I dont say that...Its the the club take the decision... I dont know...I think...I dont know..'
It must also be noted that in a television interview with ITV after the game Ronaldo was asked the same question; to which he answered 'No, no, no. I`m going to stay', before going to join the celebrations with his colleges.
So all in all, its very very positve. I have always said he will stay, and this has mearly cemented that theory for me; regardless of the media's agenda to drive the brightest talents out of our league. But this shouldnt be a day of worrying, Ronaldo's staying, we've just won the Double, HAPPY DAYS!!!
