Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has stated that the Portuguese superstar will finish his career in the Spanish capital.
The 29-year-old had been linked with a return to Manchester United next summer but the Madeira born player’s agent Jorge Mendes has stated that Ronaldo will finish his career with the La Liga giants.
“Cristiano Ronaldo will retire at Real Madrid when he turns 40, He is very happy at Madrid.
“It is impossible to lure Ronaldo away from Madrid. He breaks all the records and is regarded as the best athlete ever. He is happy at Real Madrid and has always been happy here. He will break all the records and then retire at Madrid.
“Manchester United will always have a place in his heart because he spent six years there, but he is only thinking about Madrid now and will always stay here. He is delighted to be at Madrid. People know that it is impossible to sign him, so it’s not even worth calling.”
Mendes is noted as being one of the most powerful figures in the game and such comments have all but ruled out a return for the Old Trafford legend who joined Madrid in the summer of 2009.
Earlier in the summer, Ronaldo admitted that Manchester is still in his heart and that he envisages a return to England when speaking to the Telegraph.
“I love Manchester, Everyone knows that. Manchester is in my heart. I left many good friends there, the supporters are amazing and I wish I can come back one day.”
The 29-year-old has started this season in truly stunning form scoring 13 goals in 6 games and now the 29-year-old could have the Real Madrid all time goal scoring record in his sights to truly cement his place as arguably the greatest player to wear the white shirt of Los Blancos.
