Rodriguez has been linked with a number of clubs in the past few months and after not even making the bench for Real Madrid's Champions League final against Juventus, he will be expected to leave in the summer.

The kings of Europe are back.

Ronaldo scored twice on Saturday when Madrid beat Juventus 4-1 in the final, becoming the first team to win back-to-back titles in the Champions League era.

Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon says he has one final chance to win the Champions League next season following Saturday's disappointment in Cardiff. It was a balanced game, the first half Juventus played well but the second half we were impressive. And we're enjoying winning them at the moment.

The Wales global was a second-half substitute on Saturday as Madrid claimed their second Champions League triumph in as many seasons with a 4-1 win over Juventus in Cardiff.

But it was impossible to ignore Ronaldo, who in the past 12 months has won two Champions League titles, the European Championship with Portugal, claimed a Spanish league title and the World Club Cup, and on an individual level been awarded the Ballon d'Or and FIFA's "Best" award. AC Milan have seven wins, with five apiece for Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Liverpool.

Bale said ahead of the final that he was fully fit, but Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane opted to start with Francisco "Isco" Alarcon in his place.

Cristiano Ronaldo has hit back at his haters after firing Real Madrid to a historic Champions League victory.

'My age is just a number, I feel like a young boy, ' he said.

"The second half was better". This year has been a result of this policy.

'We haven't just got a great eleven, we have a great squad so if any injuries come along there are other people who can do a job.

"My family is happy and I am happy, so yes we will continue what we are doing".

"I have a one-year contract left".

With the crowd in a frenzy, four-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo - who finished the season with 42 goals in all competitions and as the Champions League's top scorer - ended up singing, "Cristiano, Ballon d'Or" and the fans joined in.

His first effort was his club's 500th in the competition.

Madrid also has Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale in the attack, although there have been rumors of a possible transfer involving them in the near future.

"I've worked double sessions for three, four weeks to get myself ready for this and recover from the surgery".
