Ronaldo wants to retire at Real

Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed he wants to retire at Real Madrid amid rumours Paris Saint-Germain are interested in acquiring his services.

Ronaldo became the most expensive player in the world when he moved to Los Blancos from Manchester United for £80 million in 2009, a record which Real themselves broke with the signing of Gareth Bale three years later.

The Portugal international has won eight trophies in seven years at the Santiago Bernabeu, including two Champions League crowns, but rumours of a potential big-money move to French champions PSG have repeatedly surfaced over the last six months.

However, Ronaldo categorically stated he has no plans to leave Madrid and wants to continue playing for the Spanish giants until he hangs up his boots.

"I am going to retire at Real Madrid when I'm older than 40," the 31-year-old told AS. "I am very happy here and will work hard to achieve that."

Ronaldo admitted he was delighted to score the winning penalty in the Champions League final against Atletico Madrid, but insists his attention has already turned to helping Portugal lift the European Championship trophy in France later this month.

"I am super happy to have won 'la Undecima' and now I'm already thinking about the Euro," he added. "We want to give a great joy to Portugal by winning it, which is something the Portuguese people deserve."
