Amid reports Manchester United are planning to terminate the contract of Cristiano Ronaldo following his interview with Piers Morgan, the 37 year old has delivered a warning.

Ronaldo said: “If I had to prove something at 37 years and eight months old, I would be worried.

“After what I have already done and won in my career, that would be a surprise for me.

“Of course I have to demonstrate what I am year after year and everyone has opinions about me.

“For me, timing is everything. It’s easy to write opinions about me, often truths or lies, but my timing is mine and I don’t have to think about others.

“I’m sure all this won’t influence what the national team wants. All the players and staff know what I am and what I think.

“They have known me since I was 11 so they will not be influenced by what people say or write about me.”
