The four-time Ballon d'Or winner was linked with a shock exit from the Santiago Bernabeu earlier in the close-season, with Paris Saint-Germain and former employers Manchester United believed to be among those interested.

Ronaldo led Madrid to four trophies last season, including the Champions League and a first La Liga crown since 2012.

The 32-year-old – who is contracted until 2021 – wants more of the same, saying a repeat of that campaign would do just fine.

"Winning major trophies with my club last year was great, just like the individual trophies," Ronaldo told Marca.

"Doing it again would be fine."

He added: "You have to work hard, year after year, I will continue to do it. Football is my life, it is my passion."

Ronaldo is widely expected to win a record-equalling fifth Ballon d'Or this year, to draw him level with Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
