The Cristiano Ronaldo saga shows no sign of coming to a close after the Portugal international's mother, Dolores Aveiro, said her son would be staying at Manchester United next season. Ronaldo had said on Thursday that he wanted to join Real Madrid, a club that has been chasing the 23-year-old since the end of last season. However, his mother is quoted as telling Portuguese television station TVI: "He is fine where he is. The future only God knows, but what is sure is that he is going to continue in England." Earlier, Real president Ramon Calderon had told Spanish newspaper AS: "For Madrid it is an honour to know that a player like him thinks that playing at Real Madrid would be good. "We are proud to know that he would like to be with us." Meanwhile, Ronaldo has promised not to discuss his future while he is representing his country at Euro 2008 this month. He had said on Thursday: "From today, I'm not going to talk about this topic with anyone at all. "I'll only talk about this again after the European Championships. Don't ask me any questions, because I won't answer."
