"I love my players and it is a pleasure to know that we are going to be together for at least the next three years".

Jose Mourinho was reluctant to discuss the possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Manchester United this summer amid what he accepts is quite the crisis at Real Madrid.

"I think I feel a "privileged one" to work with such a fantastic group of boys", he told MUTV. United are 12 points behind Manchester City in the Premier League, out of the League Cup after losing to Bristol City but the FA Cup and Champions League still represent opportunities to win something this season.

And he believes United have landed one of the world's best players after he left the Gunners following a three-and-a-half year spell at the Emirates.

"He's very important for us because we want the best possible players".

Valero Energy Corporation (VLO ) stock price moved downswing along with the volume 3.11 million shares in Thursday session. This buyback authorization permits the oil and gas company to purchase shares of its stock through open market purchases.

However, in a press conference before Friday night's tie at League Two Yeovil, Mourinho ruled out any further arrivals or departures at Old Trafford this month following Axel Tuanzebe's loan move to.

Ronaldo was linked with an exit from Madrid in the off-season having reportedly been unhappy with the club's response to allegations of tax evasion made against him by Spanish authorities.

He came close to joining Real Madrid in 2015 when the transfer did not go through on summer deadline day due to the lack of proper paperwork and since then the Spaniard has become even more of a wanted commodity. So [I'll pour] water on the fire: Cristiano is the type of player everyone wants but only one can have.

"Could he perform better with us, could I take more from his talent?" I care about the club, I'm the last one to add fire. Maybe. But I don't think (about) regrets.
