Carvalho confident Ronaldo will renew contract with Real Madrid
Rumors about Ronaldo’s exit from Real Madrid have caused a great deal of speculation amongst the football community over the next possible destination for the Portuguese football prodigy. Monaco have entered the football market as a potential suitor for Ronaldo’s services.
The mega-rich French club might have the financial resources to sign in the former Ballon d’Or winner, but they will have to move mountains in order to convince Real Madrid and Ronaldo for the transfer move.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo continues to play with his transfer reports. Ronaldo took to Twitter to reveal he wasn’t close to signing a contract renewal with Real Madrid. With the 28-year-old’s contract expiration date set for the summer of 2015, interest in Ronaldo is at all-time high.
The new Old Trafford boss David Moyes has also remained coy over Ronaldo’s transfer saga. Reportedly, Manchester United are hot-favorites for the Portuguese winger. Ronaldo has also admitted he could return to his former club in the future, but he wouldn’t talk about the present.
“I’m sure that he’ll renew,” Ronaldo told Portuguese magazine A Bola. “Every player who leaves Madrid ends up regretting it. Cristiano is a winner, and always wants to win, so I’m sure that he’ll stay on.”
Ricardo Carvalho also talked about Fabio Coentrao, who has been under scrutiny since moving from Benfica in 2011. According to reports, Benfica are interested in bringing back the left-back this summer.
“I get the feeling that he thinks he should leave, that it is the best thing for his future,” Carvalho said. “I think, though, that he could stay. In the last year he has played regularly and played well.
“He is a great left-back and even the people who criticized him have changed their minds and now recognize how good he is. I personally think he belongs at Real Madrid.”
Benfica’s interest in Coentrao has been confirmed by their coach Jorge Jesus. The Portuguese club is expected to place a bid on the 25-year-old before the end of this week.
“I would like to bring Coentrao back to the club next year,” Jesus told the club’s official channel. “We were the ones who helped him develop when few had faith in him.”
