THERE is no denying that any team with the insane amount of money to sign Cristiano Ronaldo would love to bring the top quality footballer to their club.

The man is constantly on a one-man mission to score a load of goals and gain glory for himself and Real Madrid although I guess the 'one-man' part of that is a frequent issue for team mates.

According to Portuguese superstar, he won’t be joining the Man City fans in the Etihad stadium any time soon…

Cristiano Ronaldo is about to release a movie entitled 'Cristiano Ronaldo' about his life due to come out on Monday.

In an interview about the movie, he claims there is no rivalry between him and Messi, the two main competitors for the Ballon d’Or trophy.

"It is opinions, I respect the opinions," he said.

"Maybe in your opinion Messi is better than me, but in my mind I am better than him, so it is simple."

He said this with a menacing look in his eyes.

Real Madrid's all-time greatest goalscorer also claimed in his interview that Jose Mourinho was the world’s best manager.

When Asked if he'd ever go back to his former club in Old Trafford, Real Madrid's leading goal-scorer said 'anything can happen in the future', that was until he was asked about the possibility of taking the mega pounds on offer at City as there was speculation of the top club bidding for him.

Ronaldo replied:“You think the money is going to change my mind now, at 30 years old? I don't think so. I think this is not going to be the problem. If you speak about the money I will go to Qatar. Maybe they probably have more money than Manchester City. But it's not about the money, it's about the passion.” 

So let’s just agree that Ronaldo will not be joining Man City, his former club's arch enemy and time soon…
