Cristiano Ronaldo says he hopes to “complete his dream” of moving to Real Madrid, despite Manchester United insisting he is “not for sale”.

The European champions said on Friday: “We are not listening to offers.”

But the Portugal winger, 23, has signalled his intention to “take advantage of a great opportunity”.

“Everybody knows what I want but things don’t only depend on me,” he said. “I am not the person who decides but I hope to complete my dream.”

Ronaldo stated that he made up his mind before the Champions League final that he wanted to leave United for Real.

And he revealed that Luiz Felipe Scolari, about to take over at Chelsea after Portugal’s exit from Euro 2008, advised him to make the move.

“It is a dream, a step forward,” Ronaldo replied when asked about the prospect of playing at the Bernabau.

“For me, it is a great opportunity and, as Scolari says, that train passes by only once and we have to take advantage of it.”
