Real Madrid dominated the front and back pages of Spanish newspapers on Sunday after they beat Juventus 4-1 to win their 12th European Cup.

Ferguson handed Ronaldo the man of the match award, as the pair celebrated Real Madrid's back to back Champions League trophies.

The Spanish press has been wild with reports about a possible exit this summer, with Manchester United - thwarted in their pursuit of Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann - thought to be interested.

"What is important is that I did again, an incredible season, me and my team-mates won the double", said Ronaldo.

'This season was awesome again, last season was unbelievable.

"We played very well in the first half".

"I've worked double sessions for three, four weeks to get myself ready for this and recover from the surgery". I'm in a good moment. My head is just a number. "I feel like a young boy".

Real extends its lead as the most successful side in the history of the competition with AC Milan's seven titles a long way back as second best.

"Having said that, you know how things are. I played here for many years and this club is in my heart".

He said this while reacting to the feat the Frenchman achieved, as he became the first manager to win the Champions League two years in a row. "It was not easy".

But their defeat means they have now lost their last five Champions League finals. He told BT Sport: "No I haven't read anything to be honest, I don't read anything so it doesn't affect me at all". "That's impossible to say", he said. "But I still finished the season happy, it's a great finish with another trophy".

Leonardo Bonucci's raking pass was volleyed into the box by Alex Sandro and Gonzalo Higuain kept the ball airborne for Mandzukic to chest it up and send a looping volley over Keylor Navas.

"He was two-time European champion in a year and a half as coach". We'll speak with the coach; he is the person who will decide the future.

"We hope not too many people were injured and we hope they get better soon".

Zidane was an assistant to Carlo Ancelotti when Madrid won its 10th Champions League trophy in 2014 to end its title drought.
