Cristiano Ronaldo has again confirmed that he would like to stay at Manchester United for ‘many years’.
The winger has been in impressive form this season for the Premiership leaders and has begun negotiations on a new improved contract.
He has also been linked with Barcelona and Real Madrid, but United are determined to retain the services of their most valuable player.
Speaking after Portugal’s 4-0 Euro 2008 qualifying win over Belgium on Saturday, Ronaldo insisted he wanted to stay at Old Trafford.
“Am I the best in the world? I have been improving my game and I’m in a great shape this year. I feel mature,” he told the Portuguese media.
“The Manchester United players are by my side and I also have a great help in the national team.
“But of course I believe I am one of the best.
“I have a good contract in financial terms and what really matters to me is to show my game.
“It’s a good sign to know that I have so many clubs interested in me, such as Madrid. It means that I am valued and my work pleases.
“But I’m very happy where I am and I hope to stay in Manchester United for many years.”
