Ronaldo says he'll extend deal with Corinthians

Publish date:

Corinthians striker Ronaldo has poured cold water on a potential return to Europe, claiming he will extend his stay with his current club.

The two-time Ballon d'Or winner is widely regarded as one of the best strikers of his generation, having scored 15 World Cup goals and played for high-profile clubs such as PSV Eindhoven, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and AC Milan on the European continent.

"We have not yet started to talk about renewing my contract with the club," admitted the 32-year-old in an interview with Italian cable network Sportitalia. "However, this renewal is wanted by the club, myself and the fans. There will be no problems."

Ronaldo's goals have helped the club qualify for the 2010 Copa Libertadores, a competition the striker has yet to play in during his illustrious career.

He has also spoken of his desire to regain his spot on the Brazilian national team ahead of the World Cup in South Africa next summer.
