Despite recent reports that the Portuguese star was more than happy to stay at Old Trafford, The Sun newspaper has revealed that the talented 24-year-old is telling those closest to him at United that the stories are untrue and that he fully intends to be a Real player next season courtesy of a staggering 70million pounds deal.
The tabloid goes on to say that Ronaldo feels that with one Champions League trophy in the bag, another final in Europe's elite competition to come and three Premier League titles to his name, he has done all he possibly can with Sir Alex Ferguson's side.
"He looks to have made up his mind again. He is not saying it publicly with such a big game coming up next week in the Champions League final," a United source told the paper.
"But in his mind that will be his last. The fact Real trailed Barcelona in the Primera Liga this season only makes the challenge more exciting for him."
The latest developments come hot on the heels of reports from Spain which claim Real are adamant that no deal is in place to sign the reigning World Player of the Year.
On Friday, the Spanish media reported that former Madrid president Ramon Calderon had negotiated a pre-contract agreement with Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes, but the Spanish giants have subsequently released a statement denying any such deal is in place.
"In relation to the reports that have appeared in several media in the last few hours regarding the alleged signing of the Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo, the club want to categorically deny said information," the statement read.
"There exists no pre-agreement, neither with the player, nor with his agent, nor with Manchester United.
"As is well known, Real Madrid tried to sign the player last summer and Manchester United made it clear that the player was not transferable."
