Cristiano Ronaldo addresses the future with an emotional speech after the disdain for transfers emerged

Cristiano Ronaldo addresses the future with an emotional speech after the disdain for transfers emerged

Cristiano Ronaldo insists he is still motivated to continue his footballing career after hints that the Portuguese superstar is desperate to leave Riyadh after just five months.

Ronaldo completed a stunning move to Saudi club Al-Nassr in January and is earning in the region of £173m a year. This is – by far – the highest wage in football, which includes image rights and commercial obligations.

Last week, Ronaldo missed winning the Saudi title with Al-Nassr, after he signed for them in the middle of the season in December. The Portugal captain scored 14 goals in 16 matches, but his tally was not enough to deny Al Ittihad a third title, although Ronaldo hopes to prevent him from winning the next fourth period.

Ronaldo and partner Georgina Rodriguez are both said to be keen to return to Madrid – the city where they met. It was added that both Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid were approached about a possible transfer earlier this year, but neither club was interested.

This weekend, Atletico coach Diego Simeone spoke out about the reports and dismissed the possibility of the Portuguese striker one day joining the club: “Ronaldo couldn’t play for Atletico Madrid the same way I couldn’t manage Real Madrid.”

Ronaldo visited Singapore this weekend as part of a promotional event to speak to the youth audience. He spoke about his continued motivation to continue playing football at the age of 38.

“I like to do what I do,” Ronaldo insisted. “My passion is playing football. I’ve played this game for many years but it still makes me happy. My motivation is to play and make people happy. To make myself happy, my family happy and all the kids happy. That’s my goal.”
