Real Madrid adamant to extend Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract

Real Madrid adamant to extend Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez revealed they hope to retain the services of their superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and the extension of his deal is club’s priority at the moment.

The recent speculation suggested the 28-year-old Portuguese could be leaving the club in summer, with Manchester United and PSG touted as the most likely destinations.

The Red Devils are keen on bringing the prolific winger to the Old Trafford, where he could help them shine in Champions League next season. PSG are considering signing Ronaldo as an ideal move in cementing their position as new superpower in the world football.

Ronaldo has two years remaining on his current deal and Perez is adamant he can convince the player to sign a new long-term contract. He said: “He’s our most important asset, and we will build the future of Madrid around him.

“Soon we will clarify this issue. I have no doubt that Cristiano is going to retire at Real Madrid. I’m convinced that he’ll renew. The renewals are done before the season starts,” he added.

Asked if he plans to sign several new players in summer, Perez replied: “I try to make it that the best players in the world play for Madrid.

“Players are never expensive or cheap. It depends on the performances that they provide. (Luis) Figo, (Zinedine) Zidane, Ronaldo and (David) Beckham gave us a massive jump in income. If you invest in great players, you will have more income.

“That allows, firstly, the club to be independent and in the hands of the members, and, secondly, to attract other great players.

“We want great footballers who work hard and understand this club and its history. Those that know me, know I always want the best to come to Madrid.”
