Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says he is ‘certain’ that Cristiano Ronaldo will commit his future to the club and pen a new deal.
Ronaldo is under contract at the Bernabeu until 2015 but Real are keen to get him tied down to a new one rather than run the risk of losing him on a free transfer in the next few years.
The Portuguese ace has been heavily linked with a return to Manchester United but Ancelotti says the player is going nowhere and is confident he will eventually put pen-to-paper.
“The player wants to renew his contract and the club want him to renew it too, so I don’t think it’s going to be a problem,” the Italian said.
“I think Cristiano and the club are relaxed about the issue. I don’t know when it will happen, but I am certain that Cristiano is going to renew his contract with Madrid.”
Meanwhile, Ancelotti has refused to say too much regards Real’s attempts to sign Gareth Bale after recently upsetting Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas.
In a press conference last week, Ancelotti revealed negotiations over a transfer were taking place, comments which angered Villas-Boas, so this time he has kept his cards close to his chest.
“I won’t speak about Bale, because I have already angered him (Villas-Boas) and I don’t want to anger another coach,” the Madrid boss said.
“I didn’t say anything in particular and I prefer not to talk about this.”
