While the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was kept relatively quiet during Madrid’s Champions League final victory over Liverpool on Saturday, the Portuguese ensured that he dominated the post-match headlines.
He told beIN Sports shortly after a Gareth Bale-inspired 3-1 win for the Blancos that “it was very nice to be at Real Madrid”.
Amid talk of a possible return to Manchester United or a lucrative switch to China, the 33-year-old forward said, as quoted by Marca: “Money is not the problem.
“I have won five Champions Leagues and five Ballons d’Or. I had already made history, but now even more.
“I’m not upset because I know what I give to the club. I don’t want to erase this unique moment, with my colleagues who are champions.
“I cannot guarantee anything. I’m not going to hide, in the next few days I’ll talk… Life is not just about glory.”
