Cristiano Ronaldo: Real Madrid forward to sign new deal until 2021

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates scoring for Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo will have been at Real Madrid for 12 years if he stays through to the end of his new deal

Cristiano Ronaldo has committed his future to Real Madrid by agreeing a new contract extension that will see him remain with the club until June 2021.

The 31-year-old’s current deal ends in June 2018 but the Portuguese forward will sign a new contract on Monday that will end when he is 36.

It has been reported that Ronaldo’s weekly wage will remain at around £365,000.

He has scored 371 goals since joining from Manchester United in 2009.

The Portuguese has helped Real win the Champions League twice and one La Liga title since moving to Spain’s capital seven years ago.

Real said in a statement that Ronaldo will sign his new deal at the Bernabeu – and the announcement comes a week after his team-mate Gareth Bale extended his contract with the Spanish giants until 2022.

Ronaldo helped Real cement their place at the top of the La Liga table by beating Leganes 3-0 on Sunday.

After the game, Real boss Zinedine Zidane described Ronaldo as “unique”.

Zidane added: “It is his dream to end his career here.

“I am happy that he can renew [his contract] and finish with this white shirt like I did a long time ago.”
