How did Cristiano Ronaldo know he was going to Real Madrid already last year when just a few short weeks ago he was quoted as saying "Manchester United is my home.  It's where I want to play"?

In his first major interview since United agreed to sell him to their Spanish rivals, The News of the World asked the Portuguese star: "When did you know you would be going to Real Madrid?"

His reply will astonish United fans: "After we won the European Cup."

Ronaldo told the NOTW: "After we won the European Cup I thought there is no more I can achieve here. And when you have done all you can, you know it is time for a new challenge. I stayed one more season and it was nice to make it three titles in a row but it was my dream to play for Madrid."

When asked if the move had been agreed a year ago, he replied: "No, not that I know of. Any agreements that the clubs had were private. I expressed a desire to join Madrid and the two clubs reached an agreement. This transfer is no different from any other."

Former Real president Ramon Calderon claimed he had sealed the deal six months ago despite United boss Sir Alex Ferguson stating he wouldn't "sell that mob a virus".

Ronaldo becomes the most expensive player when he completes his £80million move to Real Madrid at the end of this month.
