Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo recently revealed that he was confident that Manchester United would win the Premier League Title.

Ronaldo was so confident that he put a bet on the outcome. It looked like the Portuguese star made a smart wager until Sergio Aguero's 93rd minute goal which gave Manchester City their first league title in 44 years.

Many believe that power has been shifted from the red half to the blue half of Manchester, but former United man Ronaldo has a different opinion. Ronaldo said that United will bounce back and they will bounce back in style.

"I saw a few days ago [City scored] two goals in the last minutes, 91 and 93. I had a bet that Manchester United would win the league but I lost,'' he told Sky Sports News. "I feel very disappointed because United are still in my heart."

"City have a fantastic team now, but I think Manchester United will carry on being kings of England.''

Ronaldo has not ruled out a move back to Old Trafford. Recently he confirmed that he is happy at Real Madrid as of now.

 "The future? Nobody knows," Ronaldo said. "I feel very happy here. It's a great club, fantastic fans.it's great. In one year or two you never know. A man's head is always complicated.'' Said Ronaldo.

Ronaldo believes that the rivalry with Lionel Messi has not only helped him, but also helped Real Madrid and Barcelona become the top two football clubs in the world.

"Sometimes it makes me tired ... for him too because they compare us together all the time,'' he told CNN World Sport. "You cannot compare a Ferrari with a Porsche because it's a different engine. You cannot compare them.

"He does the best things for Barcelona, I do the best things for Madrid, so the number. Everyone says it's incredible for him and for me because we beat our own records, so it's amazing.

"I think we push each other sometimes in the competition, this is why the competition is so high. This is why Madrid and Barcelona are the best teams in the world because everyone pushes each other.''

Ronaldo had the upper hand this season as helped lead Madrid to their 32nd La Liga title.
