Cristiano Ronaldo is keen to sign a contract renewal with Real Madrid and will hold talks over his future upon his return to the Spanish capital.
The Portugal international’s existing deal is due to expire in June 2018, but he is ready to commit his long-term future to Madrid after winning Euro 2016 with his country.
“I spoke to the president [Florentino Perez] on the phone and when I get back to Madrid, we’ll talk [over a new deal],” the 31-year-old was quoted as saying by AS.
“Obviously it’s something I want.”
Ronaldo scored 51 goals at club level in the 2015-16 season, and also netted three goals at the European Championships.
And the former Manchester United star claims that this season has been the best of his career thus far.
“This season has been the best of my career,” he added. “I won two major titles, with my club and country, so it was something unique.
“It was a very emotional moment to win the Undecima. Winning the trophy is incredible, every time I look at it I see the memories of when I won it for the first time with Manchester United as well as my triumphs with Madrid.”
Meanwhile, Ronaldo has insisted he will not feature in Real Madrid’s Super Cup clash with Sevilla in August.
The 31-year-old suffered a knee injury in a challenge with Dimitri Payet in the Euro 2016 final and was forced off in the first half in tears.
And the forward, who played a major role in guiding Portugal to glory in the tournament earlier this summer, says he will not be returning until the day after the final in Trondheim on August 9.
“I’m completely ruled out of the Super Cup on the 9th because I return to work on the 10th,” said Ronaldo.
