Cristiano Ronaldo intends to retire at Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo has confirmed he intends to finish his career at Real Madrid, ending Manchester United's hopes of signing the Portuguese superstar.

As reported by Le 10 Sport, the Real Madrid forward revealed, as well as interest from United, that French champions Paris St Germain also tried to sign him over the summer.

"PSG?" said Ronaldo. "I heard about it but it has not prevented me from sleeping. I'm at the best club in the world so I had no reason to leave."

That was before he signed a new and improved Real Madrid contract, tying him to the club until the summer of 2018.

Ronaldo would be 33 that summer, so it is conceivable that the Portugal captain could leave the Bernabeu, either for a final challenge or a return to United.

United were heavily linked with a huge bid for their former-player over the summer as speculation mounted that David Moyes's side would pull out all the stops to bring him back.

That failed to materialise however, and the contract renewal all but ended United's hopes.

And they seem to have been dealt a final blow after Ronaldo confirmed he intends to stay at the Bernabeu club until he retires.

"I do not think much about the future," Ronaldo continued. "I like to think of it like this. When you are motivated and want to do well, the future is not important.

"But it is true that at this time I feel I want to finish my career here. I feel good, I like living in Madrid, I like to play for the best club in the world and I cannot ask for more."
