Ancelotti expects Ronaldo to stay

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has denied reports that Cristiano Ronaldo could leave the club this summer.

Ronaldo, 28, has two years left on his Madrid contract and Real would have to cash in this year if they were not to lose him for a cut-price fee in 12 months' time.

He has been strongly linked with a return to Manchester United, as well as big-spending Paris Saint-Germain, but Ancelotti is confident the £80 million world-record signing will agree a new deal and not leave the Bernabeu four years after swapping the Premier League for La Liga.

"Everyone knows that he is a superstar and a great player," Ancelotti told the media in Spain before the team flies to England to play AFC Bournemouth in their first pre-season friendly of the summer. "The most important thing for the club is that a player of his quality shows the utmost professionalism.

"That is good, especially for the young players who can see a world-class player working with that attitude. I am not responsible for the renewal of his contract, but it won't be a problem."

Gonzalo Higuain has long been chased by Arsenal but now more likely to sign for Napoli, with Chelsea linked too, though Ancelotti was keen to stress he was not trying to force the Argentine striker out.

"I have spoken to the player but it was a private conversation," Ancelotti added. "He is currently a Real Madrid player and I am happy to have him here."

But he batted away questions about incoming transfers - including those concerning Tottenham Hotspur forward Gareth Bale.

"I am happy with the squad and I don't want to talk about other players out of respect for those who are here," the former Chelsea and PSG boss said.
