'We're very grateful' – Georgina Rodriguez happy in Manchester amid fears Cristiano Ronaldo could quit Man Utd

GEORGINA RODRIGUEZ says she's very happy in Manchester following reports Cristiano Ronaldo fears his dream return to Old Trafford is in danger of ending in disaster.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus striker is said to be frustrated and unhappy with the Manchester United board following “their erratic sporting decisions” and insisted in a Sky Sports interview only a top-three Premier League finish would do.

But speaking after it was reported earlier this week Ronaldo had held crisis talks with his agent Jorge Mendes about his future at the club, the footballer’s partner said they were “very grateful” for their new life in Manchester and had “no complaints.”

The 27-year-old Spaniard, who plays mum to all four of his children although only four-year-old Alana Martina is hers, said last month she loved living in England after announcing her unborn twins would be a boy and girl.

The pretty brunette, who worked in Bristol as an au pair before meeting and falling in love with Cristiano, described her return to the UK in a magazine interview as a “great opportunity.”

And in a new interview published following speculation Cristiano could try to leave Old Trafford before his two-year contract expires, Georgina said she continued to feel very much at home in Manchester.

Responding to a question about how well she was adapting to the change after living in Madrid and then Turin, she told glossy Spanish magazine Hola: “I haven’t felt much change because we practically have the same conditions as in Italy and we have a marvellous home.

“The good thing is that we live nearer the children's school. In Italy we lived further away.

“I haven’t noticed much difference. When you move with your family and you move everything you feel at ease.

“With our conditions we can’t complain, quite the opposite. We are very grateful.”

Georgina also described finding out she was pregnant again as a “big surprise” despite admitting her childhood dream was to have a big family.

The model and influencer, who is due to give birth in April is also counting down the days to the January 27 release of a Netflix docu-series about her rags-to-riches life.

She added: “I look after myself and at the moment I'm not putting on a lot of weight.

“I had a lot of morning sickness at the start but I’m fine now.”

Insisting her and Cristiano’s priority right now were their family, she added: “I’m living my dream right now.

“My dream was to have a big family because I love children.

“Today we’re a large family and in a few months we’ll be even larger.”


Jorge Mendes jetted to the UK recently for crisis talks about Cristiano’s future at Man United according to reports.

A source close to Ronaldo was quoted as saying “nothing had been ruled out”.
Catalan newspaper Sport has linked him to a potential move to Barcelona if the 36-year-old quits the Premier League club at the end of the season.

Latest reports say Paris Saint-Germain are lining up a move for the five-times Ballon d’Or winner who has already scored 14 goals in 21 appearances for Manchester United.

In his Sky Sports interview Ronaldo said as his team languished in seventh position in the league: “'Manchester United should win the league or be second or third.

“I don't see other positions for Manchester United to be honest, I don't see. In my eyes, I don't accept that our mentality be less than to be in the top three in the Premier League.”

Sounding new alarm bells about his Old Trafford future beyond this season, he added: “I don't want to be here in a club to fight to be in sixth or seventh or fifth place, I'm here to try to win, to compete.”
