Ronaldo: I’m off in a year

CRISTIANO RONALDO has told friends: “If I don’t leave Manchester United now, I certainly will in a year.”

The Portugal winger and his agent Jorge Mendes are now considering their get-out strategy.

Ronaldo believes that having now won the Champions League and Premier League double it is the right time to chase his dream of joining Real Madrid.

The 23-year-old may have to concede staying at Old Trafford for one more season.

But it seems inevitable that he will leave sooner rather than later.
