Ronaldo has been one of the key men in Real's recent successes, with his 46 goals for Los Blancos in the La Liga last season helping them win their first league title since 2008.

The former Sporting CP player has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu since the end of last season amidst widespread reports of the Portuguese international falling out with several of the Real squad, and the likes of Manchester United and French giants Paris Saint-Germain have been touted as possible destinations for the 27-year-old.

However, Ronaldo moved to downplay speculation that he was unhappy at the club, claiming that he would never give anything but his best for Los Blancos whenever he stepped onto the pitch.

"I feel very good, I hope I can give my best and be better than last year," Ronaldo was quoted as saying by the official Real website.

"The truth is that I feel more comfortable with the fans, not only in the Bernabéu, where I've always felt appreciated, but I also feel a lot of support when we play away too. 

"The fans are great, I feel very happy and I try to contribute in the best way I can, which is by playing well and giving my all for this shirt and for Real Madrid. 

"The important thing is to win and to be together, the team and the fans".

Unfortunately for Ronaldo, Real have been plagued by inconsistencies this season; Los Blancos currently lie 16 points behind league leaders Barcelona in the table, but Ronaldo has refused to concede the title and claims his side still have a chance to retain their status as champions of Spain.

"We want a perfect start to the year," Ronaldo declared. 

"Our opponents are on a very good run of form and we want to start the year better than last year. 

"We are favourites and we must win no matter what. 

"The league is tough, but it is still mathematically possible for us to win and we have to keep the belief until the end. 

"It will be an uphill struggle. 

"In the Champions League we are playing against a great team. It will be difficult to win, but possible. 

"In the cup we have to win at home and we are favourites against Celta. We have to believe we can win".

Real will take on Real Sociedad in their next La Liga fixture.
