Ronaldo close to Madrid move

23 Jun 2009 - 07:33:44

Departing Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo hopes to have completed his world record transfer to Real Madrid by the end of June.

The Portugal international has returned to his home land after holidaying in Los Angeles, but is set to leave for the Spanish capital in the next few days to make his historic £80million transfer from United to the Bernabeu official.

He told the Portuguese press: "Real Madrid is the club at which I've always wanted to play.

"I want to start pre-season well, that's what I really want. The truth is that I'm eager to start.

"I know that the expectations are great, but I have to get used to that.

"It will be a little difficult at the start because I was at Manchester United for six years.

"In England, they play a more physical style of football, faster, but that is not an excuse. I only hope that I can adapt as quickly as possible.

"My life is based on challenges. Every year at Manchester United I had that. This is a different season because everything is new and that's why it's a different challenge.

"Winning titles is the challenge. Madrid are used to winning things, the same as Manchester United. I have high hopes and I'm certain that everything will turn out well."
