Ronaldo hints at retirement next year

The Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo told that he could be ready to hang up his boots at the end of this season, reports Mirror Online.  

He only signed a 4 year contract with current club Juventus last summer following his £100 million transfer, and despite the 5 time Ballon D'or winner helping Juve to the Serie A title last season, he told it may be time to call it a day.

On the other hand, fans of the 34-year-old needn't be too concerned, he said. As he also suggested he could go on until into his forties yet.

As reported by Goal , when quizzed on retirement by TV1, he said that I don't think about that. And, Maybe I can leave my career next year  but I can also play up to 40 or 41.

"I don't know. What I always say is to enjoy the moment. The gift is excellent and I have to continue to enjoy it," he added.

Cristiano Ronaldo said "I don't think there are any footballers who have more records than me."

“The difference with Messi is that I played for several clubs and won the Champions League with different clubs,” said Ronaldo in his DAZN documentary ‘The Making Of’.

“I was top scorer in the Champions League six seasons in a row. There aren’t many players who won five Champions League trophies, so this is why I feel that I can identity myself with this tournament, he told.

“Messi is an excellent player who will be remembered not just for his Ballon d’Or wins, but also for having improved - like me - year after year, he added.

“I wake up every morning with the idea in my head of training with the objective of achieving something more, not just to earn money.

He said that thank God, I don’t lack money, so what I want to earn is a place in the history of football.
