On the same day Real Madrid got battered by Barcelona, Cristiano Ronaldo has confessed he believes his dream is dead, with his only objective being to win the European Cup with us again.

“I’m no longer thinking of Madrid. That dream is dead,” said Ronaldo. “The only thing I dream about now is Manchester United and winning the Champions League again in Rome.”

So, is the dream dead for the long term? Or until he wins the Champions League again? I personally can’t see there being any way he will stay if we win it again this summer. He was apparently fully committed until we won it in Moscow, so a second European Cup would surely finish his United career.
