The Mirror believes Cristiano Ronaldo is pining for Manchester despite being happy at his new club Real Madrid. The Portuguese is quoted as saying: “What people think about me is their opinion but I really miss Manchester a little bit as 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, really happy there.”
The papers are unusually quiet on the United front. Many report on Sir Alex’s quotes that the club will not sign players in January, while others are still full of opinion on the Reds' defeat to Fulham on Saturday.
For example, Derek McGovern writes in The Mirror: "Their makeshift back four succeeded in doing what no other defence has ever done - it made Bobby Zamora look a worldbeater."
