To be fair, it was a ridiculously provocative line of questioning from the interviewer.
Here's the full transcript:
R: I'm with Cristiano Ronaldo, Cristiano this is historic, 3 CL in a row, oh my!? CR: Incredible, we hadn't realized what an achievement the team had just achieved, a unique moment, a special moment, there are few words that can describe this moment of happiness of the team. R: From the 3 Champions League Real Madrid wins that I've been to, it's the first time I've seen you a bit more serious than usual, you've said that you have been very happy at Real Madrid and that you'd speak in the next days. Why (?) CR: (laughs) Enjoy, enjoy this moment, this team deserves it, Zidane, the backroom staff, the future of the players is not important right now and in the next days I'll speak and... I'm very happy. R: Why did you say that, why did you say that you'll speak? Do you have any doubts? CR: No, I have no doubts... It's really not important now. Now I have to enjoy this moment then rest a bit and go to the national team and from then, next week, we will see what happens but at this moment it's not important, important is the history Real Madrid just did. R: But there was a goal missing this final from you CR: There's nothing wrong. (smiles) Who was the top scorer of this competition? R: You with 15 goals CR: Or even better the CL should be renamed to CR7 Champions League (shrugging) 5 Champions, top scorer again, for not scoring do you see me sad? Obviously you always want to score, but you don't so what? It doesn't matter, more Champions, more goals, top scorer again, am I going to be sad? I can't be (smiles) R: You can't be, you have achieved everything in Real Madrid, except 1 CL at Manchester CR: Exactly, exactly R: And wouldn't it be better to retire here in white? CR: No, I'm not saying that, I'm just saying what is important is the team, enjoy this moment and in the next days we know... I have to go they are calling me now

If we get Fekir then our midfield 3 will be lightning fast behind the current front 3.
And where have you pulled that out from?
We been linked with him since 2016 just like PSG non stop probably because his agent is Mendes and it’s a lazy link by the media. Just like Gaitan and others. Not once in those two years did a official source say we actually made a bid or anything. If we were really interested then we would have signed him in the last two years.
The midfielders we been linked with have been Savic and Fred. The latter looks to be done.
