Cristiano Ronaldo insists that he's not worried about his future at Juventus amid talk of a return to Manchester United.
Juventus forward Ronaldo is set to get his Euro 2020 campaign underway this evening as Portugal take on Hungary.
But there is plenty of speculation flying around about the five-time Champions League winner's future, with just one year left on his contract.
At 36, it remains to be seen how long Ronaldo can keep playing at the top level, with talk of a swansong at United to round off one of the most glittering career football has ever seen.
But Ronaldo has played down all the rumours that he is leaving Juventus, insisting he is focussed only on winning his second successive European Championship title, having been successful back in 2016.
“Transfer? I’m not even there," Ronaldo replied when asked about the rumours. "I’ve played as a professional at the highest level for 18 years already. I’m not even there for this kind of rumours.
“If I was a player starting now, 18 years old, maybe I’ll be nervous and shaking, or would not be able to sleep at night thinking about it.
“But now… whatever might come will be surely for the best. My focus is all on national team. You don’t play an event this big every day!

“It’s my fifth European Championship but in my mind it is like if it is going to be the first one!
“I am not focused on individual records: thing come by naturally. They’re not my obsession, it does not bring extra pressure on me.
“If I make it, it will be good perhaps because it means that Portugal is on a good path to keep the crown.
“If it’s not going to be this first match, it will be in the next one or maybe on third match. Portugal’s victory comes first, results matter – all the rest is just c***.

“It’s not like one of those records takes me to the moon. I’ll be mad with delight if me win the Euro twice in a row, that will make me happy. There is a beautiful record to achieve!
“The team is ready, and winning first match can be crucial in this kind of competitions.
“We know Hungary is a very organised team and with the fans supporting them, but that is football's charm: the most important is to have the fans back in the stands and enjoy the event.”
