Portuguese ace Cristiano Ronaldo wants to finish his illustrious career at Real Madrid.
Yet another summer, yet another transfer window and yet another time when rumors of Cristiano Ronaldo being possibly sold to another club arise. But Ronaldo has now expressed his desire to finish his playing career at Madrid.
After being asked about questions regarding his future in Madrid, the Real Madrid striker replied, “I’m super happy to have won La Undecima and now I’m thinking about the Euros. We want to give great joy to Portugal by winning it, which is something the Portuguese people deserve. I’m going to retire at Madrid when I’m over 40. I’m very happy here and I work hard to achieve that.”
According to a report by Eurosport, the Portuguese ace spoke to the media during his vacation where he confessed his strong desire to play until his body allows, if possible beyond the age of 40 as well. Now this commitment by the 3 time Ballon d’Or winner must come as music to the ears of Madrid fans.
In his time at Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo has had an astounding record in front of goal, scoring 364 times in 348 appearances for Real Madrid. His feat borders on the impossible and indicates the immortal status he has achieved in his 7 years in Madrid.
Ronaldo’s mission – to take club and country to the top
With Portugal pinning their hopes on Ronaldo, their main-man, for a good showing in the Euros, the 31-year-old striker is no stranger to the burden of expectations. Ronaldo has consistently been outscoring and outperforming his teammates at Manchester United and Real Madrid.
Ronaldo has made significant contributions helping his teams achieve success consistently over the past decade. Wherever Ronaldo has played, be it Manchester United, Real Madrid or for his country Portugal, he’s always been the man who’s been the key to winning or losing games.
