“There are no certainties in football”, admits Cristiano Ronaldo. Every spotlight directs at the Living Legend whenever he flirts with his transfer move. If reports are to believed, Ronaldo is keeping all options open for the future.
The 30-year-old Portuguese star feels that it is complicated to play for Manchester United or Barcelona in the future, he doesn’t rule out anything as of now. In a recent interview with the Associated Press he talks openly about his future plans and ponders every possibility.
The Guardian quoted him as saying, “There are things that you kind of already have an idea, that to play one day for Barcelona would be almost impossible, or to play for another English club other than Manchester, it’s very complicated.”
“But that’s not 100% guaranteed. As I said before, there are no certainties in football.”
“Everything is open, all leagues,” he said. “I may end my career here with Real Madrid. I’m just being honest. I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. If I was 75% certain, I would say so, it wouldn’t be a problem. But I have no idea.”
He even says that it is not impossible to see him playing in the United States in the Major League Soccer.
“Right now I don’t see myself playing in the American league, but that’s right now,” he said. “In two or three years I may think differently.”
Ronaldo’s stint with Real Madrid ends in 2018 and there are no official statements to prolong his career at Santiago Bernabeu. He has been linked with a lot of European clubs like Paris-Saint Germain as well as his former club Manchester United, noted Bleacher Report.
“When it’s closer to ending my contract I’m going to have to make decisions, whether it’s staying at Real Madrid or going to another club or ending my career in a few years,” the 30-year-old Ronaldo said.
The ace-forward has been shortlisted for Ballon d’Or along with Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr.
