Real Madrid want to extend Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract at the club, according to Spanish daily AS.
The future of the Portuguese has been in some doubt in recent months, with Ronaldo on occasion not cutting the happiest of figures, while there has also been talk of a bid by Paris Saint-Germain to take the forward, along with Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho, to the Parc des Princes.
But Real Madrid do not want to lose Ronaldo and will not sell him to PSG, leaving the only way for the French club to sign the former Manchester United man to activate his release clause of €1 billion.
Real Madrid had been planning to offload Kaka over the summer and use the wages paid to the Brazilian to increase Ronaldo’s salary.
However, Kaka stayed put, although he is likely to leave either next month or in the summer.
Real Madrid want to add an extra three years to Ronaldo’s contract, taking it up until 2018, while at the same time handing the Portuguese an increased salary.
Ronaldo is believed to want to remain at the Bernabeu, leading Real Madrid to believe they will be able to come to an agreement with the forward.
