Cristiano Will Retire At Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent has claimed that the two-time Ballon d’Or-winning forward will finish his playing career at Real Madrid.

The Portuguese was consistently linked with a return to Manchester United last year before putting pen to paper on a new deal which runs until June 2018, when he would have spent nine years at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Ronaldo, who will be 33 years old in the summer of 2018, claimed last month that he would like to stay with the current European champions for longer than his existing deal if they will have him.

And his agent Jorge Mendes is convinced that the Portugal international, 29, will be a Real Madrid player until the day he hangs up his boots and suggested the club should consider retiring his No.7 shirt upon his departure.

“I got to know him when he was 15 years old, from then until now we’ve spoken together on most days,” he told Globo Esporte. “When I’m in Madrid we always meet up. Our relationship is more like a friendship.

“I believe that Cristiano will finish his career at Real Madrid. He’s happy at the club and is still keen to achieve more success in Madrid.

“Will the club retire his shirt number when he finishes at Madrid? With every respect to the likes of Raul and Di Stefano, no player can compare to Cristiano Ronaldo.
