Cristiano Ronaldo seeking contract extension with Real Madrid
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is currently seeking a contract extension to stay with the club, according to Sky Sports.
Ronaldo, who helped lead Portugal to its first European Championship, but suffered a knee injury early in the final, is currently on an extended break from the sport. He plans to start negotiating terms for a new deal when he returns.
The 31-year-old has played with Real Madrid since 2009 and signed a five-year contract extension in 2013.
“Obviously it’s something I want, I have mentioned it many times, and the club also wants it. But we only spoke briefly, and there will be more concrete things to come,” he said.
Ronaldo also confirmed that he has already been ruled out for Real Madrid’s UEFA Super Cup match against Sevilla on Aug. 9.
