There’s good news for Real Madrid.
The Spanish giants have confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo will renew his contract at the club, with an announcement due tomorrow (Monday) at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The Portuguese superstar will sign a deal until June 30, 2021, meaning he will be 36-years-old when it expires.
Ronaldo’s ceremony will be held in the presidential box at Madrid’s famous stadium, with president Florentino Perez in attendance, a statement on the club's website read.
The three-time Ballon d’Or winner has voiced his desire to end his career at Los Blancos, even claiming he plans to retire at the club in his 40s.
Why not if he’s still good enough?
"I am going to retire at Real Madrid when I'm older than 40," Ronaldo told AS earlier this year, via Goal. "I am very happy here and will work hard to achieve that."
There were rumours that Ronaldo could return to Manchester United, the club he joined as a teenager, but it seems now that his dream of retiring as a Galactico will come true.
Which is good news for everybody. It means we get a few more years of Ronaldo going head-to-head with Lionel Messi, and who doesn’t like the sound of that?
Zidane: Cristiano is unique
Ronaldo’s manager, Zinedine Zidane, recently expressed his desire to see the winger retire at the Bernabeu.
"What he has to do is finish his career here," said Zidane, via Sky Sports.
"Cristiano is unique for what he has done and what he is going.
"It is his dream to end his career here. I am happy that he can renew (his contract) and finish with this white shirt like I did a long time ago."
Top of La Liga and a whopping new contract on the way. It’s a good time to be CR7.
