Ronaldo quashes contract talk

By Football News



With La Liga set to resume this weekend after the Spanish winter break, one man is dominating the headlines.

Cristiano Ronaldo says he won't discuss his future at Real Madrid until he's helped them make up for a disappointing first half to the season.

Ronaldo's next move has been the subject of constant speculation since he said he felt 'sad' at the Bernabeu in September.

"It isn't the most important thing right now," Ronaldo said.

"We have to focus in the upcoming games, we are still fighting in la Liga, in la Copa, Champions... So until the end my renewal or someone else's is not important.

"The important thing is winning, stick together with the fans. So I will not talk about it."

Real get their campaign back under way against Real Sociedad on Sunday.

But they'll be without defender Pepe who has had ankle surgery and could be out for up to a month.

Real have further selection problems at the back, with Fabio Coentrao and Marcelo also missing.
