Cristiano Ronaldo has another 10 years to offer to Real Madrid, believes his agent, Jorge Mendes. The Portugal star claimed the third Ballon d’Or of his career earlier in January – the second during his spell in the Spanish capital – after enjoying another sensational year with Madrid but has been quoted as saying that he would consider a move to Brazil before he retires from playing.
However, Mendes is convinced that his client will end his playing days at the Santiago Bernabeu even while thinking that he has another decade ahead of him at the highest level. “I’m almost certain that, yes, he’ll retire there at 38 or 39 because he has many years to give yet,” the Portuguese’s representative told Marca. “You all know that he’s the best example I can give of a professional; he’s a person who takes great care of himself.” Madrid’s next game is against Cordoba on Saturday.
