2013-09-16 10:08:10 | (0 Comments)
Cristiano Ronaldo says he wants to stay at Real Madrid for the rest of his career after signing a new contract with the Spanish giants until 2018.
The 28-year-old Portugal forward was linked with a return to former club Manchester United over the summer.
Spanish reports suggest he will earn an annual salary of 14 point 2-5 million pounds
His previous contract at the Bernabeu was due to expire in 2015.
Ronaldo joined Real from Premier League champions United in 2009 for a then-world record transfer fee of 80 million pounds.
He has scored 203 goals in 203 games for Los Blancos, helping them win La Liga in 2011-12 and two domestic cups.
The Madeira-born star was also voted as the world's second best player, behind Barcelona's Lionel Messi, in 2011 and 2012.
But questions were raised about the ex-Sporting Lisbon youngster's future as Real planned their 85 point 3 million pounds summer move for Tottenham forward Gareth Bale.
As well as a return to Old Trafford, he was also linked with a switch to big-spending French club Monaco.
