Cristiano Ronaldo says he would like to retire at Real Madrid, following Saturday’s 1-0 win in the Club World Cup final win against Gremio in Abu Dhabi.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner said: “If possible yes, I’d like that. But it does not depend on me. What I do on the pitch is up to me. I’m not in charge of the club, it is the people at the top who are. I do my work on the pitch. If possible, then I would like to, we’ll see”.
Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane also expressed his belief that the Portuguese should hang up his boots in the Spanish capital.
“Would I like Cristiano to sign a new contract? Of course, as soon as possible. It’s crucial for us that he stays here right until the end of his career. He’s here at his club, and his home. Nobody is going to repeat what he’s been able to achieve and what he is still achieving. I hope he stays here until he retires,” said the Frenchman.
