Cristiano Ronaldo: Real Madrid forward wants new contract

Cristiano Ronaldo says he wants to see out his contract at Real Madrid, which has nearly four years to run, the BBC reports.

The Portuguese forward, 29, has been linked with a return to Manchester United, whom he left to join Real in a then-world record £80m deal in 2009.

He was presented with the European Golden Shoe on Wednesday for scoring 31 La Liga goals in 2013-14.

“I hope to finish my contract with Real Madrid at 33 and after that we’ll see if they want me to stay,” said Ronaldo. 

“I feel young and still a long way off retiring.”

Ronaldo shares the Golden Shoe award with Uruguay’s Luis Suarez, who scored 31 Premier League goals for Liverpool last season before joining Barcelona for £75m.

The Portuguese, who has been nominated for the 2014 Ballon d’Or award to decide the world footballer of the year, has already registered 22 goals in all competitions this season.

In total he has scored 194 league goals in 174 appearances for Real, while netting 55 times in 55 Champions League matches for the current holders.
