The Real Madrid president moved to calm fears over the Portuguese superstar's future after a controversial post-Champions League final interview

Cristiano Ronaldo is happy at European champions Real Madrid and will continue to be content at the Liga club, according to president Florentino Perez.

Ronaldo dropped a post-match bombshell after Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 in Saturday's Champions League final in Kiev, suggesting he could leave the Spanish side.

"It was very nice to be at Real Madrid," Ronaldo said. "In the next days I will talk."

But Perez appears confident five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo can be persuaded to stay at Madrid, who celebrated their third successive Champions League title.

"Everybody has the right to speak and I'm not going to talk about any personal case," Perez said.

"I'm delighted that Cristiano has five Champions Leagues, like myself.

"Today is the day to celebrate another European Cup. Let us enjoy it.

"Cristiano is happy and will continue to be happy, I'm not here to talk about anyone. 

"I'm going to celebrate with everything, the club has 13 European Cups, we have the best players in each position."

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has also sought to play down the exit talk surrounding Ronaldo, while Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema have expressed doubts as to a summer deal being done.
