Carlo Ancelotti: Ronaldo will never leave Real Madrid


Former Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti says he doesn’t think Cristiano Ronaldo will make a big money move away from the club before his playing days are over.

The Portugal international joined Los Blancos in 2009 and has since gone on to become the club’s all-time scorer. His brace against Malmo in the Champions League last week took him to 324 goals in 308 games, beyond the previous record set by legendary forward Raul.

But despite all the heroics for the 10-time Champions League winners, talk has always surround the striker’s future – with him never hiding his love of former club Manchester United. French side PSG have also been linked with trying to tempt Real into selling with a big money offer.

In an interview with Le Parisien, Ancelotti, who won the Copa del Rey and Champions League with Real in 2014, said he thinks Ronaldo will stay in the Spanish capital for many more years.

“He etched his name into the record books at Real Madrid the other day when he equaled Raul’s goalscoring record. I cannot imagine him leaving Real Madrid. I think he will stay at Madrid until the end of his career. Everybody at the club loves him,” the Italian stated.
