The 25-year-old will earn a reported £520,000-a-week after tax, making him the world's highest earner in the game, but he quickly rejected accusations that he had only forced a move to PSG for the money that is on offer at the Qatari-owned club. The season started with a 3-2 extra-time triumph against Sevilla in the Super Cup in the Norwegian city of Trondheim. The three-player shortlist for this award all come from Manchester United. "We all know where we are and when you finish a season like past year winning, it helps you try to do the same thing coming into the new season".

Spanish club Real Madrid swept the nominations for the UEFA awards for last season, securing six (out of a total of 12) nominations for best players in each positional category who played in last year's UEFA Champion's League. "When I won the Champions League with Inter, I left Inter.". United Manager Jose Mourinho said it would be an impossible mission to sign Ronaldo from Madrid.

"It's something I've been through many times. When my advisers tell me, "Cris, it's okay" then I believe them". I'm never exhausted to repeat how well organised it was.

Mourinho, whose team won the Europa League last season to salvage an otherwise disappointing first campaign under the Portuguese, led Real to the Liga title with a record 100 points and won a King's Cup in an eventful stay between 2010 and 2013.

"So I just look at Real Madrid as what they are: a big club, the European champions, and it's a great motivation for us to play against them." he said.

Nemanja Matic is in contention to be involved in Tuesday's showpiece after impressing in his first outing of pre-season, a 45-minute appearance in last week's friendly win over Sampdoria in Dublin, while fellow summer signings Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku could also make their competitive debuts.
