Cristiano Ronaldo will retire at Real Madrid and lead them to their tenth European Cup/Champions League title, according to Florentino Perez.
The Santiago Bernabeu president was speaking to Punto Pelota when dismissed any suggestion Cristiano Ronaldo would be leaving for Manchester United.
Perez went further than saying the Old Trafford club would not be signing the Portuguese superstar, claiming nobody would do so again for the rest of his career.
This week has seen reports of a return to Manchester United for the player they initially signed nearly ten years after he was rumoured to have put his villa in Madrid up for sale.
This would not be happening, according to Perez, because Real Madrid would be doing all they could to get him to stay and take care of unfinished business.
A second successive Champions League semi-final defeat this season saw Real Madrid miss out on ‘la Decima’ los Merengues have been craving for this past decade.
Perez insisted the tenth European triumph would be coming to the club soon and it would be Cristiano Ronaldo leading them to it.
“I think that Cristiano will end his professional career at Real Madrid. And that's not all, I can tell all Madridistas that we will soon win la Decima with Cristiano," he said.
"I don't know whether the Madridistas are very concerned about the contract renewal of Cristiano. He still has a contract for two more years."
