Cristiano Ronaldo who failed to score in the game, as Gareth Bale climbed off the bench to net twice in a 3-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday night that his future may not be in Madrid, after referring to his time there in the past tense.
Ronaldo said he would soon make an announcement on his future.“Right now we need to enjoy ourselves but in the next few days I’ll give an answer to the fans who have always been by my side.
Despite not finding the net, Ronaldo still finished this year’s Champions League as the tournament’s top scorer, but now seems set to quit the club.
Ronaldo exit rumours were one of last summer’s big transfer stories, as tax charges in Spain reportedly upset the superstar. However, despite all the talk, Ronaldo elected to remain with the club.
He will feature at the World Cup in Russia this summer in what could be his final international tournament for Portugal, with whom he won the European Championship finals in 2016.
Ronaldo told beIN Sports after the game,”It was very nice to be at Real Madrid, in the coming days I will talk about it more.When asked if he was saying goodbye, Ronaldo answered: “No, no. I’m going to enjoy this moment with my colleagues. In the next few days I will give an answer.
We made history, that’s what we were looking for, the future of any player is not important, the important thing is that we made history.”
Ronaldo became the first player to win five Champions League titles since the competition changed format in 1992, including one with Manchester United.
