Cristiano Ronaldo Admits He Doesn’t Want to Sign New Real Madrid Deal as Los Blancos Form Crumbles
Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted that he doesn’t want to renew his contract at Real Madrid, saying that he is happy with his current deal.
Speaking after Wednesday night’s shock 3-1 defeat to Spurs at Wembley, the Portuguese superstar said that he is ‘doing very well’ at the Bernabeu and, at the age of 32 and with four years left on his deal, he has no reason to think about extending his contract.
The former Manchester United man moved to the Spanish capital back in 2009, and said: “I am doing very well at Real Madrid. I have four years left on my contract and I don’t want to renew. I am fine.”
When asked about his side’s recent poor form in the wake of Wednesday night’s thrashing at the hands of Spurs – his first loss to the north Londoners in 18 career games against them – Ronaldo was reasonably circumspect.
“It is bad because we are losing and we are used to winning,” he said. “It is a bad run. It is not how we would want things, but football changes. It is a bad run but we want to change and I am sure we will change. We have a lot of time still to get better and I am convinced we can do so.”
The reigning Spanish and European champions also lost on Sunday at Primera Division new boys Girona, leaving themselves eight points behind Barcelona at the top of the table with just ten games played. Real have never come back from such a deficit to win the league.
