The interview quoted Ronaldo as stating that if Jose Mourinho had left the Bernabeu to return to Chelsea, he himself would have returned to England to join City.

Ronaldo reportedly said: "Jose Mourinho is staying at Madrid so I stay. If he went to Chelsea then I would have left. I would have gone to Manchester City. But now he's staying, I'm staying."

However, the Real Madrid forward released a statement on Twitter to clarify that he did not speak to the newspaper and he did not make the reported comments about City.

"The Sunday Mirror publishes an interview with me today," read the statement. "All that content is false.

"I have never spoke with the newspaper, and never made those statements."
