Cristiano Ronaldo has conceded he wants to complete his contract at Real Madrid in the midst of speculation about his future with the Spanish giants.
Ronaldo, who joined Real in 2009 from Manchester United for a then-record fee of £80 million, in under contract at the Bernabeu until June 2018.
Speaking at the Marca awards ceremony on Monday, Ronaldo told those in attendance, “I want to stay here for two more years, and then we’ll see about the future. That’s the contract that I’ve got. Now what I have to do is try to win trophies and the Champions League once again.”
The Sporting Lisbon academy product was honoured Monday with the Pichichi Trophy, given to La Liga’s top scorer. Ronaldo had 48 goals last season to win the award for the third time in his career.
The 31-year-old continued, saying, “I’ve spent seven years in Spain and for me La Liga is the best in the world.
“I also spent six years in England, in Manchester, and this league is wonderful, very competitive, with great players and, for me, it’s a privilege to be here and to leave my mark, which has been very good.”
