Arguably the most powerful agent in Football today, Jorge Mendes has delivered the strongest message yet on Cristiano Ronaldo‘s future by stating that he has a great relationship with president Florentino Perez and will retire at Real Madrid.
With recent events such as a plane flying over the stadium with a banner asking for Cristiano Ronaldo to return to Manchester United at his previous home of Old Trafford, there ever speculations whether Cristiano Ronaldo might just be thinking of a return to the club which gave him the break-through to top level European Football.
But all such speculations have been put to rest as Jorge Mendes has spoken out earlier today
“Cristiano Ronaldo will retire at Real Madrid when he turns 40,” Mendes told Cadena Cope.
“He is very happy at Madrid. It is impossible to lure Ronaldo away from Madrid. He breaks all the records and is regarded as the best athlete ever. He is happy at Real Madrid and has always been happy here. He will break all the records and then retire at Madrid”
“Manchester United will always have a place in his heart, because he spent six years there. But he is only thinking about Madrid now and will always stay here. He is delighted to be at Madrid. People know that it is impossible to sign him, so it’s not even worth calling.”
Mendes then went on to claim that the Portugal international is the greatest of all time.
“Ronaldo is the best player in the world and the best we have ever seen,” he declared. “You will never see a player like him again. He is getting better and better and will continue to do so until he turns 40.”
“You cannot compare him with anyone. There will not be anyone like him in the next 500 years.”
Jorge Mendes went on to explain the Champions League and the love Cristiano Ronaldo has for it
“It’s his dream to win the Champions League again. He is always hungry for more and never ceases to amaze.”
