Manchester United Right For Cristiano Ronaldo - Inter Coach Jose Mourinho

Real Madrid have been chasing Cristiano Ronaldo for some time but Inter have also been strongly linked with Manchester United's powerhouse winger.

However, Nerazzurri tactician Jose Mourinho has now insisted that, although he admires his Portuguese countryman, Ronaldo is right where he should be: Old Trafford.

The former Chelsea boss told United's official website, "When I was in England I wanted all the best players to play in the Premier League.

"Now I’m in Italy and I want all the best players to play there. I always want to be involved in the strongest league.

"Ronaldo, though, is part of Manchester United's history and Manchester United are a part of Ronaldo's history.

"I’m nobody to give advice, but when you’re playing for a top team and you're getting what you want – and I think he’s getting what he wants in terms of team trophies and individual honours – why change?"

‘The Special One's’ words hint at a respect for his old foe Sir Alex Ferguson and his Red Devils, who will soon travel to Italy to face ‘Mou's’ men in the Champions League.
