The London club have been linked with a move for the Brazilian striker and there has been speculation in Spain that Ronaldo will be leaving Madrid at the end of the season.

“When there is interest from other teams, you have to listen – especially when that interest comes from England and I’ve never played in the English league,” admitted the 27-year-old World Cup winner.

“I know there is interest from English clubs though, as yet, there’s nothing concrete.

“Right now I’m happy at Real and love the club but I’d be foolish to dismiss any interest in me.”
