Bad news for Man Utd: Cristiano Ronaldo signs new Real Madrid contract
Manchester United’s hopes of bringing Cristiano Ronaldo back from Real Madrid have been dealt a significant blow after he signed a new five year contract with the Spanish giants.
The 28-year-old will pocket a £14.25m-a-year salary until June 2018.
As if the new deal wasn’t enough to discourage United, the Portuguese star spelt out his intentions.
He said: “Everyone knows that I was in Manchester for six years and it was a club that give me many, many things, and I don’t forget that.
“But Manchester is the past. Now this is my home, my family is here.
“I hope that I’m here until I retire. This is a great club.
“I respect all the clubs who ask about me. But they always know that my decision, that my only goal, is to be here and to play at this club until, maybe, the end of my career.”
