Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United have both been frequently linked with the 28-year-old this summer, but the Madrid president insists he is going nowhere.
"He's our most important asset, around who we build the Madrid of the future," Perez told 20minutos. "Soon we will clarify this issue. I have no doubt that Cristiano is going to retire at Real Madrid. I'm convinced that he'll renew. The renewals are done before the season starts."
