Cristiano Ronaldo is likely not expected to be getting a new contract after the expiration of his last signed revised deal with Real Madrid in September 2013 and currently has three years remaining on that contract after the forward claimed he could potential play until he is 40.
After receiving his fourth Golden Boot on Tuesday, Ronaldo pledged his long-term future to the Spanish club: “My dream is to retire at Real Madrid. If you take care of yourself you can play until you are 40.
“I want to keep going for another five or six years. I feel good and useful in Madrid and I want to win here.”
And our source understands that Madrid have already held private discussions with Ronaldo and have informed the forward that there is no immediate need to revise the current contract in place.
Ronaldo’s change in stance is also welcomed by Madrid after the forward had claimed earlier in October that “nobody knows the future” when he was asked about potentially leaving the Spanish capital.
Madrid president Florentino Perez also fuelled speculation in September by hinting that the Portugal international’s future may lie away from the club:
“Cristiano Ronaldo has a contract and we want him to stay in the future, but in this life you can’t be sure of anything.”
