Ronaldo tipped to join Real Madrid

Ronaldo pledged his future to United after the club turned down an approach from the Spanish giants last summer.

Pepe said: “Cristiano’s mother has a dream – to see her son playing for Real Madrid.

“It is well known that mothers have a lot of influence.

“It is a dream that his mother has but also one that he has.

“Now we’ll see there is logic behind that dream.”

He added: “The dressing room is very good.

“Everyone has an idea of Cristiano that is different from the reality but I have known him for a long time.

“He likes dressing well and buying the best and because he can do that, he does.

“But he is a very simple person really.”
