Ronaldo confirms Madrid stay

Cristiano Ronaldo wants to repeat last season’s success with Real Madrid as he put to bed any lingering doubts he would leave the club this summer.

Reports in June suggested the 32-year-old star had made an ‘irreversible decision’ to leave the Bernabeu but he is now aiming for a repeat of last season’s La Liga and Champions League triumphs.

“Winning important trophies with my club last year was great, just like the individual trophies, and to do it again would be great,” Ronaldo told an interview with Marca.

“You have to work hard, year after year. I will continue to do this, football is my life, it is my passion.”
