He said that Cristiano Ronaldo was never on the table for him in the first place and rejecting the opportunity to sign the former Real Madrid hitman is a far cry. In the Spurs match, we were positive and strong and I think the opponent, a very good opponent, felt they were in trouble.
Ronaldo was bought for just £12.4 million as an 18 year-old by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2003, where, as the first Portuguese player in the history of the Premier League, he would spend six lucrative seasons, the high point winning the first of his five Champions League trophies.
Luke Shaw earns recall to Southgate's England squad
Shaw's United team-mate Ashley Young , who helped England reach the World Cup semi-finals, has been left out of the squad, as has the injured Phil Jones .
"It's time. We have been knocked out in the quarterfinals in the last three seasons".
"We are concentrating on this because it is possible, we have a squad where we can fight for this competition". Things changed a while ago here and now the owners are multimillionaires. I know I can't avoid that now, I have to do that.

"My idea is to remain here at Barcelona, my kids have their friends and school, we are thinking about that more than anything".
PSG made a big statement last summer when they snatched Neymar from Barca in a world record €222 million deal and Messi believes the finances involved in the game these days have changed how players act.
