Florentino Perez says that Cristiano Ronaldo will retire from football at Real Madrid.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez firmly believes that Cristiano Ronaldo will end his career at the Santiago Bernabeu amid rumours of a potential summer exit.

The Portuguese international has been frequently linked with a return to former club Manchester United, and recently took to Twitter to deny claims that he had agreed a new deal with the La Liga giants.

However, this raises no concern for Perez, who is confident that Ronaldo will remain at the club for a long time to come.

"Cristiano made these statements because there was some information in the media which did not match reality," Perez told 20minutos.

"Soon we will clarify this issue. I have no doubt that Cristiano is going to retire at Real Madrid. I am convinced that he will renew.

"[Renewing with Ronaldo] is our most important activity, around whom we can build the Madrid of the future."

Ronaldo has also been the subject of interest of AS Monaco.
