Cristiano Ronaldo has expressed his desire to focus on football rather than be drawn into discussions about a new contract at Real Madrid.

The future of the world's most expensive player has been under speculation ever since he claimed to be "sad" earlier in the season due to "professional reasons".

That led to claims he was seeking higher wages that were in parity with that of rival Lionel Messi.

Amid the speculation have been suggestions that big-spending PSG want to lure him to Paris, as well as suggestions that he could return to Manchester United, the club that sold him for £80m.

When asked about the contract situation at Real Madrid, Ronaldo told reporters:  "That subject has already been spoken about. I won't talk about my contract renewal any more, it's not important.

"The most important thing is winning our next matches. We are contesting La Liga, the Copa del Rey and the Champions League and it's important that we all stick together.

"Right now I'm feeling more comfortable with the fans, not just at the Bernabeu, where I've always felt good, but outside too.

"They have shown me a lot of love. I want to pay them back in the best way possible, which is playing well and giving my all for the shirt and helping Madrid get to the top.

"We want a perfect start to the year. We are at home, we are the favourites and we need to start well."

The 27-year-old's current deal with the La Liga champions runs until June 2015.
