Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly decided he’ll resolve his future in July once he finishes World Cup duty with Portugal.
The 33-year-old will be hoping to add to his list of honours this summer, after winning his fifth Champions League in May. The international stage is set, one he’s also proven his worth on by helping Portugal win the European Championships in 2016.
Ronaldo’s future made the headlines following the Champions League final with Liverpool with speculation growing that he could make a sensational return to his former club Manchester United.
Don Balon in Spain have claimed Ronaldo will not decide anything until later next month as he wants to keep a clear head for the World Cup, though his deadline is to resolve things in July.
Portugal will be seen as serious contenders not only because they’re European champions, but it’s impossible to rule out a side that has a goal scorer like Ronaldo in their ranks.
At 33, questions will be asked whether this is Ronaldo’s last World Cup considering he will be 37-years-old by the time the next one comes around.
Lionel Messi will be hoping to spoil that party and win his first piece of international silverware for Argentina.
