In response to the speculation linking Cristiano Ronaldo with various clubs over the past few months, the three-time Ballon d’Or winner’s agent Jorge Mendes has declared that Real Madrid will be the forward’s last side.

Rumours over Ronaldo’s future at Real intensified after the goal-machine reportedly told Laurent Blanc that he would ‘love’ to play under the manager at Paris Saint-Germain, with French newspaper Le Parisien claiming that he added: ‘Your team play very well,’ after Real’s 1-0 win over PSG in the Champions League in early November.

But as Mendes picked up an award at Sunday’s Globe Soccer awards gala in Dubai, he emphatically revealed that his client will remain in La Liga with Real.

‘He’s the best player of all-time,’ Mendes told Sky Sports. ‘And I am sure that he will play the next four, five, six, seven years at Real Madrid; he will end his career there. 

‘He’s happy with Los Blancos; he’ll hang up his boots when he’s 40’.

Ronaldo scored a brace in Real’s incredible 10-2 victory over Rayo Vallecano at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday, December 20, and the 30-year-old has since enjoyed a trip to the United States during La Liga’s reduced winter break.
