Cristiano Ronaldo comments on di Maria and Xabi Alonso transfer news

Real Madrid superstar spoke out over club's policy in the summer market, commenting on the transfer news involving Manchester United and Bayern Munich.

Legendary Manchester United attacker and now a player breaking records with Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo has refused to comment in detail on the club's outgoing transfer policy this season.

The Portuguese forward expressed unhappiness over Real Madrid's apparent willingness to sell Mesut Ozil to Arsenal last summer and now it appears he may not have been pleased with the sales that saw Angel di Maria join Manchester United and former Liverpool midfielder link up with compatriot Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich.

"I have a very definite opinion, but I am not always allowed to say what I think," the Real Madrid goal-scorer is quoted by MARCA to have said. "Otherwise, tomorrow I'd be on the front pages of all the papers and I don't want that.

"If I were in charge, perhaps I wouldn't have done it like this," he said in what is a nod to the aforementioned exits.

"But if the President thinks that the best thing for the team is to sign the players he signed, and let others leave, then his decisions must be respected and supported."

Real have, to date, signed five players - with one on a short-term loan basis.

Toni Kroos was acquired from Bayern, James Rodriguez was bought from AS Monaco, Keylor Navas left Levante for the Santiago Bernabeu and Fernando Pacheco was promoted from the Castilla. Javier Hernandez, meanwhile, completed a one year loan deal from United.

"With the new players, our style is going to change, but it might change for the better or for the worse," added Ronaldo.

"Let's hope it will be for the better because they are top quality players. What usually happens is that they adapt well. Di María and Xabi Alonso were very important to us, but they aren't here anymore and we have to be happy with the newcomers. I'm sure that things will go well for us."
