Ronaldo Won't Discuss Long-Term Real Future

MOST COMMENTED

Cristiano Ronaldo has refused to publicly discuss his long-term future at Real Madrid. In an interview with AS, the Portuguese reiterated his commitment to coach Jose Mourinho’s project, but would not discuss his contract renewal. His current contract expires in 2015.

When asked about the contract extension, which he rejected, Ronaldo said: “That subject has already been spoken about. I won't talk about my contract renewal any more, it's not important. The most important thing is winning our next matches. We are contesting La Liga, the Copa del Rey and the Champions League and it's important that we all stick together.”

The futures of both Ronaldo and Mourinho have been cast into doubt in recent months after a run of poor results that has seen Real slip to 16 points behind league leader FC Bacelona. Mourinho is rumored to be on the way out at the end of the season, while Ronaldo feels marginalized by a lack of support from the club, and could look to leave over the summer, too. Paris Saint-Germain has been muted as a possible destination for both.
