La Liga News Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo has hinted he will stay at Real Madrid next season after putting his future in doubt following Los Blancos’ 3-1 win over Liverpool in the Champions League final.

Ronaldo, who failed to score in the final, was said to be turning the attention on himself after Gareth Bale’s instant impact off the bench saw him score one of the greatest goals in Champions League history, followed by a long-range strike which was ultimately a Loris Karius error as it travelled straight at the German.

After the final whistle, Ronaldo was quizzed on his future in Spain and said: “In the next few days I’ll give an answer to the fans. It was beautiful to be at Real Madrid. The future of any Madrid player is not important; we have just made history.”

This was later followed up with: “I spoke when I shouldn’t have done but something is going to happen. It wasn’t the right time, but I was honest. In a week I’ll say something because the fans have always supported me and are in my heart. I don’t speak much, but when I speak, I speak.”

However, despite his comments catching many by surprise, the 33-year-old now seems to have performed a U-turn on his initial comments, offering hope to Madrid fans that he will still be wearing the number seven at the Bernabéu next season.

Speaking at Real Madrid’s Champions League parade, Ronaldo was quoted by Goal telling Madridstas: “Thank you for being here this afternoon. We made history thanks to you who’ve always supported us. It’s a happy moment and we are very happy, too. Hala Madrid and nothing else. Thank you. Until next year.”

As Madrid’s celebrations entered the Santiago Bernabéu, Ronaldo took the microphone but was shortly surrounded by his teammates who jumped on him, chanting ‘Cristiano stay’. Those who had attended the celebrations inside the stadium joined the players in wishing for their club legend to stay to which Ronaldo responded to, saying: “What can I say about these fans who give me so much love every day?”

“I’m really proud to play in the biggest club in the world. Thanks for the chants. This is very important for me. I’m very happy with your passion, with these players and these coaches who give me the motivation to be better.”
