Published 2 Comments

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that he plans to retire at the Santiago Bernabeu. 

The Portuguese superstar, who picked up the European Golden Shoe award yesterday, has quashed rumours that he could sign for Manchester United or Paris Saint-Germain by claiming that it's his 'dream' to finish his career with the La Liga giants. 

Since arriving on Spanish soil in 2009, Ronaldo has enjoyed a remarkable stint with Real and recently became the club's all-time record scorer.

On top of that, Ronaldo has secured numerous individual and team awards in Madrid, but it appears that he's determined to continue to break even more records over the coming years. 

Speaking at the award ceremony, as per the Telegraph, Ronaldo stated: "Logically, I have a contract until I am 33 and - as I have said a number of times - my dream is to finish here with Real Madrid.

"I am settled here, I'm useful here and I want to continue at the club. I want to win and I am at the best club in the world.

"I'm not satisfied yet - I always want more. Real Madrid have to win silverware every season and this year is no different. We want to win the league, the Champions League, the cup - everything."

United return unlikely 

Let's be honest, it's now looking increasingly unlikely that Ronaldo will return to Old Trafford before the end of his career. 

United fans shouldn't be too worried, though. Ronaldo would cost the club a huge sum and the Red Devils should concentrate on developing their own attacking young players. 

With the likes of Anthony Martial, Memphis Depay and Co. plying their trade in Manchester, the United faithful must look to the future. Ronaldo is well and truly in the past.
