Cristiano Ronaldo admits to missing United "a little bit"

Cristiano Ronaldo concedes he has missed Manchester United since completing his world record £80 million transfer to Real Madrid over the summer.

Ronaldo's lengthy flirtation with the Spanish giants finally ended in June and he has adapted rapidly to life in Spain, scoring 13 goals in ten games for Manuel Pellegrini's side.

But having developed into one of world football's elite players during his six-year stay at Old Trafford, winning three Premier League titles and the 2008 Champions League, Ronaldo still has fond memories of life at United.

"What people think about me is their opinion but I really miss Manchester a bit," said Ronaldo after being named in the FIFPro World XI on Monday. "I played there for six years and I left a few friends there. So I miss the club a little bit but I'm focused now at Real Madrid and I'm really happy there.

"I think they [United] are doing very well this season. They have lost two [of their past three] games, but they are still second in the league."
