Cristiano Ronaldo recently admitted that he wants to retire at Real Madrid at some point in his 40s.

Much has been made about the Portugal international’s future, with many reporting that Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United are interested in acquiring the three-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Spanish outlet AS are reporting that the 31-year-old will sign a contract extension when he returns from Euro 2016.

“A deal is practically now sealed,” the report claims, with the only lingering part to settle being the length of the contract.

Ronaldo’s current deal expires in 2018. Whether the new deal lasts until 2020 or 2021 needs to be decided.

The former Manchester United hero has always expressed his desire to stay at the Champions League winners, and a new contract will put him even closer to achieving his goal of staying in the Spanish capital into his 40s.

He recently told AS: “I’m going to retire at Real Madrid at 40-something. I’m very happy here, I’ve worked hard to be where I am.”

The forward netted 51 goals this past season, a clear reminder of his incredible talent. After firing the winner in last week’s Champions League final, why would Los Blancos wish to split with the man who has helped them win two European Cups in the past three years?

As rumours - as ridiculous as they may be - emerge of Lionel Messi potentially moving to Manchester United, La Liga looks set to keep hold of one of its stars.

Can Real Madrid become the first team to win the Champions League in back-to-back seasons? Let us know in the comments section below!
