Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed his future plans after this summer’s World Cup in Russia amid Manchester United transfer rumours.
The Portugal international has now dropped a huge retirement hint following doubts surrounding his Real Madrid future in recent weeks.
It was reported that the 33-year-old, who won five Champions League trophies, will return the Old Trafford this summer.
Reports also suggest that Ronaldo could retire if he wins the World Cup this summer. However, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has insisted that he will keep on playing no matter how Portugal fare in Russia.
“Winning the World Cup is the best thing you can possibly achieve in your career because you represent your country and it is so difficult to win,” Ronaldo told The Sun.
“So if we could do it, then for me it would be the maximum. To give a World Cup to Portugal would be the greatest dream of my life and mean that I would have won everything a player can aspire to win.
“Some people may think if I win the World Cup it would be time to retire, but I am ambitious and I still have a lot to give to this sport.”
Ronaldo has joined Madrid in 2009 from United on a world transfer record and went on to win 15 trophies with the Los Blancos.
Portugal, who were knocked out at the group stage during 2014 World Cup, will play Spain, Morocco and Iran in Group B.
