The Portugal international has been repeatedly linked with a move away but the Blancos president insists the 28-year-old wants to see out his career at the club

Cristiano Ronaldo wants to retire at Real Madrid just as previous greats of the game have, says club president Florentino Perez.

Ronaldo, 28, has two years to run on his contract at los Blancos but continual rumours have linked him with a move away to either Manchester United or Paris Saint-Germain.

And although no negotiations have taken place to extend Ronaldo's stay at the club, Perez remains convinced that the Portuguese star wants to retire at Madrid.

"The person who wants to retire at Real Madrid is Ronaldo, and Real want him to retire here too," Perez told broadcaster Univision.

"There haven't been any negotiations [on a new deal] because he is on holiday. Be in no doubt, Cristiano will retire here because he wants to. Just as [Zinedine] Zidane and other great players have done."

Ronaldo has scored 201 goals in 199 appearances for the Liga giants.
