Real Madrid are not considering the prospect of extending Cristiano
Ronaldo’s contract after the forward claimed he could potential play until
he is 40.
The 30-year-old last signed a revised deal with Madrid in September 2013
and currently has three years remaining on that contract.
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 Goal 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.”
