Cristiano Ronaldo will sign a new contract with Real Madrid in the coming week, one which could keep him at the club until June 30, 2021, when he will be 36 years of age.
The duration of the new deal is the only aspect that could yet be altered, with all other details now finalised, and pen is expected to be put to paper in the coming days when the player’s agent Jorge Mendes meets with Los Blancos’ director Jose Angel Sanchez.
By extending the No.7’s deal, the capital city club will be demonstrating just how much the forward still means to them and, with Ronaldo as motivated as ever, the club’s hierarchy had no doubts about keeping him at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu for longer.
The Portuguese forward will remain the best-paid player in the squad, something which no director or player has any concerns about given the respect Ronaldo has earned.
Assuming there are no last minute alterations, the extension – which Radio MARCA reported on weeks ago – should be signed on Monday or Tuesday.
