Cristiano Ronaldo will keep playing until he is atleast 37, claims Fabio Paratici, Juventus sporting director despite the 34-year-old’s suggestions that he will likely bow out in 24 months.
Reacting on the plans of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner to quit after two more seasons, Paratici, who was speaking during an awards ceremony in Italy, waved off Ronaldo’s retirement plans.
"Ronaldo is very focused on his goals as well as his own personal objectives as he is the Golden Ball candidate again.
"I do not think he can leave at the end of this season and I doubt he will leave at the end of the next one.
"At the moment I am sure of one thing, we have a contract,” noted Paratici, who was quick to add.
"We are very happy with him and he is happy with Juventus."
Ronaldo current contract at Juventus runs out in 2022 and reportedly pockets £27.7m-per-year.
The 34-year-old former Manchester United star has scored four times along with one assist for Juventus in Serie A this campaign.
