Cristiano Ronaldo will retire at Real Madrid, says Perez

The club president believes that the attacker’s future lies as the Spanish giants and has insisted they have not received any offers for Gonzalo Higuain

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is hopeful that Cristiano Ronaldo will remain at the Santiago Bernabeu until the end of his career.

The Portugal international, 28, stated in the autumn of 2012 that he was unhappy with life at los Blancos and has since been linked with a return to Manchester United as well as a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Nevertheless, Perez believes that the prolific attacker’s future lies at Madrid.

“I think that Cristiano will end his professional career at Real Madrid. And that’s not all, I can tell all Madridistas that we will soon win la Decima with Cristiano,” Perez told Punto Pelota.

“I don’t know whether the Madridistas are very concerned about the contract renewal of Cristiano. He still has a contract for two more years.”

The Madrid president then went on to discuss the future of Gonzalo Higuain, who recently said that he wants to leave the club and is being heavily linked with a move to Juventus.

“Nobody has told me yet that Higuain is leaving. The club have never put him up for sale. We have always told him that we do not want to sell.

“He said that he wants to leave, but there’s no concrete offer. If he wants out, they will have to pay his exit clause, but there’s no offer for now.

“I spoke to Juventus recently and Higuain was never discussed, so I’m a little surprised. You cannot open talks with another club’s player without permission. Juventus are a befriended club, though, so I guess everything will soon be clear.”

Higuain, 25, has a contract with Madrid until June 2016
