Super Agent Mendes confirms when Ronaldo will retire

Cristiano Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes says his client will retire after Juventus stint, having been quoted as saying 'With this team he'll close out his marvellous career', as cited by Daily Mail.

Ronaldo penned a four-year contract worth £500,000 per week with the Serie A giants earlier this week when he called time on his nine-season spell at Real Madrid. Following the move, there had been suggestions that the former Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United star could be tempted by a lucrative move to either China or the US towards the end of his career, but Mendes expects him to hang up his boots in Turin.

Mendes made £10.6million from Ronaldo's £100m transfer to Italy in an interview with Sport said: "I'm very happy for Cristiano. Juventus will be his last club and I'm glad he made this decision. With this team he'll close out his marvellous career.

"I thank (Juventus president) Andrea Agnelli in particular for his determination and his willingness to negotiate with Real Madrid.

"And I also thank (Juventus general manager) Beppe Marotta for his professionalism."

One of Ronaldo's first games as a Juventus player could be against Real. Ronaldo's new team and his former side face each other at Maryland's FedExField in the International Champions Cup on August 4.
