A lot has been going on around Cristiano Ronaldo since the year began; first the Ballon D’Or win, secondly the break-up with former girlfriend, Irina Shayk and just yesterday confirming that he is seeing a new girl, a Real Madrid TV journalist, Lucia.

Ronaldo in a publicity press conference talked about a next possible move if he was ever going to leave Real Madrid and he snubbed interests from England with Manchester United and Chelsea indicating willingness to have the player in their dressing room.

The 27 year-old said that he would rather a move to Brazil where he has lots of friends and respect, also naming the biggest clubs in Brazil as the could-be destinations.

‘’In Brazil, I have many friends, so my relationship with the country is very good. At Real, I have passed many Brazilians, with Kaka one of the people I respect most of all.’’

Whether he has any of the Brazilian clubs in mind, he added: ‘’Corinthians and Flamengo are two famous clubs, I would gladly dress in one of their shirts.’’
