Video: “It’s Not About Money, It’s About Passion” – Cristiano Ronaldo Rules Out Man City Move

Cristiano Ronaldo insists he could never be swayed into a big-money move to Manchester City.

The Manchester United legend, 30, was asked this week if he would ever consider joining City if they met his lucrative wage demands.

But, to the delight of many Red Devils around the world, the Real Madrid superstar made it clear he would never be tempted into betraying his old club like that.

Ronaldo said: “You think the money is going to change my mind now that I’m 30 years old?

“I don’t think this is going to be a problem. If you speak about the money then I will go to Qatar. They probably have more money than Manchester City.

“But it’s not about the money, it’s about the passion.”

Ronaldo spent six successful years at Old Trafford before being sold for a world record £80million in 2009.

The striker is looking increasingly likely to leave Madrid at the end of the season and has been linked with French champions Paris Saint Germain and also a return to his beloved United.
