Cristiano Ronaldo will only play for Real Madrid in Europe - Michel Salgado

Cristiano Ronaldo will only play for Real Madrid in Europe - Michel Salgado
From ESPN - July 16, 2017

Cristiano Ronaldo may end up retiring at Real Madrid, says his former teammate Michel Salgado, who played down the prospect of the Portugal captain leaving Spain any time soon.

The 32-year-old has been linked with moves to former club Manchester United and French champions Paris Saint-Germain this summer after reports he would consider walking out on Real due to scrutiny over his personal income tax.

But Salgado, who briefly crossed paths with Ronaldo at Madrid in 2009 before joining Blackburn Rovers in the Premier League, says he does not see him wearing the colours of any other European club.

"I do not see Ronaldo with another shirt, at least in top football," Salgado said at the Star Sixes tournament in London.

"Maybe he will retire in Real Madrid, and or maybe he is then going to try another league like the U.S., or something like that.

"But in top football, in Europe, I do not think Ronaldo is going to change clubs. I think he is comfortable in Real Madrid."
