Ronaldo: Plans to retire at 40 at Real Madrid

30 May 2016, 13:14

Milan - Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo plans to play at least nine more seasons for the Champions League winners, as he is currently negotiating an extension to his contract.

According to the One World Sports website, Ronaldo said in a press conference last week that he's happy at the club and he's solely committed to the Spanish club after rumours that he might join Paris Saint-Germain or Manchester City.

"Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City can forget it, I'm retiring at Real Madrid. I have had good and bad moments, four years ago I was not happy but there is no better place to be than here."    

Ronaldo’s whopping €105 million five-season deal, which he signed in 2013 runs up through to June 2018 and there are talks that he might look for a two-year extension.

Ronaldo said that Madrid should extend his contract, "Real Madrid would be smart if they extend my contract. I am happy at Real Madrid. I can see no club better than this one."

This means that Ronaldo will presumably retire at the age of 40.

Since joining the club in 2009, Ronaldo has credited the club with 360 finishes and became the only player to reach 350 goals for a European football club. The Portuguese forward scored the decisive penalty that clinched Real Madrid's 11th Champions League title over cross-town rivals Atletico on Saturday.
