Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother wants her to son to play for Real Madrid rather than any English team.
The Portugal international is currently playing a major role in Manchester United’s bid for the English Premier League title but his mother, Dolores Aveiro, is keen to see her 22-year-old son at the Bernabeu.
She told Spanish TV channel Canal Plus: “I don’t like English teams but I know I have to like them because he (Ronaldo) is at Manchester.
“But for me… Real Madrid. Of all the foreign clubs, Real Madrid is the best. Before I die I would like him (Ronaldo) to play for Real Madrid. I would really like that and then I could die, it wouldn’t matter.”
Ronaldo signed a five-year contract extension with Sir Alex Ferguson’s side in 2007 and has struck 17 league goals so far this season.
