    Ronnie: "I intend to be here for years and years."


    Cristiano Ronaldo has again moved to distance himself from reports linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

    The Manchester United winger became embroiled in a long-running transfer saga involving the Spanish giants last summer, before eventually committing his future to the Red Devils.

    Those at Old Trafford had hoped his public show of affection for the club would help to bring an end to the incessant rumours.

    However, the issue has resurfaced following the opening of the January transfer window, with Real once again touted as a possible destination for Ronaldo this summer.

    The Portuguese superstar insists he is happy at United, though, and has reiterated his intention to remain at the club for the foreseeable future.

    "I intend to win as many trophies as I can with this club for as long as possible," he said.

    "We are a young team and the future is good.

    "I want to be here and be part of the success that lies ahead. It is great to be part of such a fantastic club.

    "I intend to be here for years and years."

    Ronaldo is certainly not letting his focus be distracted by the Real rumours, and is targeting a clean sweep of silverware this term.

    United have already claimed the Club World Cup this season, but remain in the running for Premier League, UEFA Champions League, FA Cup and Carling Cup glory.

    "We are going to try and win the lot, and why not? In my head I know it is possible," added Ronaldo.

    "The priority is to retain the Premier League and Champions League and we have the players, the spirit and desire to do more.

    "We want to make history by winning all five trophies."

    This interview could have done with being said last summer, but could it go some way to repairing the damage?
