Cristiano Ronaldo dismissed speculation suggesting he has committed his future to Real Madrid by putting pen-to-paper on a new five-year deal.
The Portugal international still has two years to run on his current contract at the Bernabeu but Real officials are keen to tie him down to new improved terms.
Ronaldo has been linked with a return to Manchester United, who sold him to Real for £80million back in 2009, and the speculation will rumble on until a new deal is sorted.
Reports had claimed that Ronaldo had committed his future until 2018 after signing a contract worth 17million euros a year after tax, but the player says that is not true.
“The situation still hasn’t been resolved and I don’t think now is the right time to talk about it,” Ronaldo revealed.
“Perhaps we’ll be able to give more concrete news about this further down the line but now the only thing in my remit is to train and work.”
Meanwhile, Real are set to play Chelsea in the final of the Guinness Champions Cup out in the USA and Ronaldo has played down the meeting with former boss Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho has been critical of both Real and Ronaldo since leaving Madrid in the summer, but the player says it is not a grudge match.
“We are facing Chelsea, not their coach. Athough it’s like any other game, we want to win,” he revealed ahead of the clash in Miami.
