Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has hit back at former manager and current Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, following the Portuguese boss' claim that their relationship was 'non-existent'.
The Real star has been linked with a move back to England the following summer and reports suggested that he would return to Manchester United. Louis van Gaal also hinted that he would be interested in signing Ronaldo, if he became available.
Following those reports, there came a shocking claim that Chelsea are preparing a £60m bid to lure the Portuguese international to Stamford Bridge, with his former manager Mourinho keen on a reunion.
However, the Blues boss quashed those rumours saying that there was no relationship between the two and said 'forget it' when asked about the transfer.
"You would not find us hanging around together. The relationship does not exist, but the remembrance of his impact," Mourinho said, as quoted by the Express.
Ronaldo has come out and spoken about his future and has distanced himself from reports suggesting a move back to England by stating his commitment to the Spanish capital club.
However, the former United star has hit back at his former manager by labelling his comments 'not important'.
"Mourinho? What he says is not important. I only think about Real Madrid. I want to help them, the other things I do not care about," Ronaldo said, as quoted in the Express.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo (187 goals) has now become Real's third highest goal-scorer in the La Liga and is now only behind Raul (228) and Alfredo Di Stefano (216).
The Portuguese star scored four goals against Elche taking him past Santillana to third place, and in doing so created another record as he becomes the first Real player to score in 13 consecutive home games.
