Ancelotti: Ronaldo will end career with Madrid


Carlo Ancelotti worked with Ronaldo in Real Madrid for almost 2 years.

Despite being linked to Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, former manager Ancelotti believes that a move for Ronaldo is unlikely.

“He etched his name into the record books at Real Madrid the other day when he equaled Raul’s goalscoring record,” Ancelotti told Le Parisien.

‘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.’

When asked if Ronaldo would join PSG, Ancelotti replied “I don’t know.”

He also added a tidbit regarding his departure from the Spanish giants, conceding the he “knew what he was getting into”.

“At Madrid, when you don’t win [a trophy], you’re fired. It’s not normal but I knew what could happen when I signed for Madrid,” he added.

“Those were two great years but they decided to change the coach. Now I think about finding a new club.”

Ronaldo has 10 goals in 10 appearance for Real and Portugal this season, including two in Real’s 2-0 Champions League victory over Swedish club Malmo.

Those goals saw the 30-year-old tie the club record 323 goals set by Raul but will have to wait until after the international break to take the record outright after failing to score in his side’s 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid on Sunday.
