Ronaldo wants Madrid stay

Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted he wants to finish his career at Real Madrid.

Ronaldo, 27, has enjoyed his most successful season to date in Spain, helping Madrid to the league title as well as the semi-finals of the Champions League, but there have been suggestions he could look to move on.

He was booed by the club's own fans earlier in the season and in May gave an interview to Sky Sports News in which he said: "I feel happy here but, in one year or two, you never know."

However, there has been speculation that he could sign a contract extension until 2018 and he has now sought to clarify any doubts over his future.

"If it was up to me, I'd stay here until the end of my career," he told MARCA. "I really mean that, sincerely. I would stay at Real Madrid and I'd sign up for ten years today. I want to stay but it depends on others."

Jose Mourinho recently signed a contract extension until 2016 and Ronaldo said that it was "perfect" news. "A club like Real Madrid has to have a top coach," he said. "Real Madrid without Mourinho wouldn't win so many titles as with him."

With Barcelona's dominance of La Liga having come to an end last season and Pep Guardiola's departure, there have been suggestions that Madrid could once more establish themselves as the country's finest team.

"The fact is that we've broken Barcelona's run," Ronaldo said. "I'm sure that from now on it's going to be much better. The players have more confidence and we believe in the team more."

On his personal ambitions for next season, he added: "I'll try and break my records, be even better. Maybe I won't score more goals but assist more, for example. I always try to improve. It's almost impossible to beat it but I'm going to try."
