CR7: Juventus striker says transfer rumours are ‘just talk’

Cristiano Ronaldo has criticised media reports linking him with a move faraway from Juventus.

In a post on social media he didn’t outright deny a move was possible or commit his future to the Italian side.

But the 36-year-old forward said he was “focused on his work” despite reports linking him with Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City.

The Portugal captain called rumours “a disrespect on behalf of me as a person and as a player”.

He added: “Less talk and more action, this has been my guiding motto since the beginning of my career.

“However, in sight of everything that’s been said and written recently, I even have to line out my position.

“The frivolous way that my future is roofed within the media is disrespectful to all or any the clubs involved in these rumours, also on their players and staff.”

“My story at Real Madrid has been written. It’s been recorded. In words and numbers, in trophies and titles, in records and in headlines. It’s in the Museum at the Bernabeu Stadium and it’s also in the minds of every fan of the club,” the long statement ran.

“I know that the true Real Madrid fans will continue to have me in their hearts, and I will have them in mine.

“I’m breaking my silence now to say that I can’t allow people to keep playing around with my name. I remain focused on my career and in my work, committed and prepared for all the challenges that I have to face.

“Everything else is just talk,” he concluded.

Speculation over Ronaldo’s future has intensified in the days since great rival Lionel Messi left Barcelona and joined PSG on a two-year deal.
