The Manchester United star, still the subject of intense speculation linking him with Real Madrid, confirmed he needs an operation after Portugal's elimination from Euro 2008.

It was later announced a decision on the surgery would be delayed until after the player returned from holiday.

Portuguese newspaper A Bolo has now reported Ronaldo is back in his homeland after a break in Italy and has met with doctors from the national team and United to set a date in the next few days.

The 23-year-old, however, once again declined to make a definitive statement on his future.

"I can only say that (I) will spend the period of my recovery in my house in Sintra, but regarding my future I cannot say anything," Ronaldo said.
