Cristiano Ronaldo is keen to help Manchester United become the first team to successfully defend the Champions League against Barcelona.
Much has been made of Ronaldo’s long-term future at Old Trafford, but the Portuguese international remains focused on securing another Champions League triumph.
“It’s normal that people speak about me but I am 100 per cent focused on this game,” explained Ronaldo.
“I try to help my team 100 per cent, score a goal and win the game. That’s it.
“I don’t care about the Ballon d’Or. What I want more is to win the Champions League.
“I just want to be the first team in history to win it twice.”
Ronaldo has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and he has conceded he has a soft spot for La Liga.
“I like the Spanish league,” explained Ronaldo. “I feel well in England in the Premier League, it is the strongest league.
“Barcelona have a great team which deserves respect but I believe we are better than them and we will show it.
“I respect Barcelona profoundly. Messi is playing marvellously well. I want to be sincere. I have to play well for the team and the supporters. I look forward to it and I think it will be really special.”
