Carlo Ancelotti blasts Cristiano Ronaldo to Man United rumours as "nonsense"

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti insists that Cristiano Ronaldo is "happy" at the Bernabeu and any reports suggesting that he wants out are "nonsense".

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has rejected rumours that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave the Bernabeu for a possible reunion with Manchester United.

The Portugal captain is believed to have become disillusioned with life in Spain after the club allowed Xabi Alonso and Angel di Maria to leave in the summer.

Widespread reports have claimed that Ronaldo would be open to returning to Old Trafford following his departure back in 2009.

However, Ancelotti has insisted that the 29-year-old, who won the Ballon d'Or in January, is "happy" playing for the European champions.

"These are words without meaning." FourFourTwo quotes Ancelotti as saying. "I believe [the] reports are nonsense. Cristiano is happy here, very motivated to be here, and all Madridismo is delighted with him.

"Ronaldo [has] great professionalism, leadership, we must enjoy him and do everything to keep him in this physical and mental condition. Without doubt Ronaldo is the best player in the world. We are lucky he plays for us. We have to enjoy it."

Reports have claimed that it would cost £200m in fees and wages for United to bring Ronaldo back to the Premier League.
