Manchester United: Cristiano Ronaldo wants to do big things for the Red Devils “in the next three or four years”
Cristiano Ronaldo initially signed with Manchester United for two years. The second time with the Red Devils could last longer.
Before his first competitive game after returning to Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo announced that he could well imagine staying with the English record champions beyond the term of his new contract.
“I’m ready and I think I’ll do great things in the next three or four years,” the 36-year-old Portuguese said in an interview with United’s in-house television network, suggesting that he could possibly stay with the club until 2025 . Ronaldo, who returned to Manchester from Juventus Turin at the end of August for 15 million euros plus eight million euros in bonus payments, initially signed a two-year contract until 2023. This also includes an option to extend it for a further year.
The five-time world footballer also emphasized that he wanted to win titles with the Red Devils: “That’s what I’m here for. I didn’t come to take a vacation. As I said: It used to be nice, I won important titles and this jersey many years ago worn. But I’m here to win again. “
Cristiano Ronaldo before Manchester United comeback: “ready to go”
Ronaldo moved from Sporting Lisbon to United in 2003 at the age of 18 and matured into a world star at Old Trafford. CR7 celebrated three English championship titles with United and in 2008 his first of five Champions League triumphs. He finally moved to Real Madrid in 2009 and is now back in Manchester after three years at Juve.
“I’m ready to get started. It’s a nice opportunity for me, for the fans and for the club, to take another step forward,” said Ronaldo. United has been waiting for an important title since triumphing in the Europa League in 2017, with the club’s last English championship dating back to 2013.
Ronaldo could make his second debut for United on Saturday (September 11th). Then United will meet Newcastle at 4 p.m. on Matchday 4 of the Premier League at Old Trafford.
