Ancelotti ‘certain’ Ronaldo will extend

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is confident that Cristiano Ronaldo will stay at the club.

The Portugal international has so far been reticent to sign a new deal at Santiago Bernabeu, with his current contract set to expire in 2015.

But the Italian tactician has insisted that the star forward will put pen-to-paper.

“I think Cristiano and the club are relaxed about the issue,” he told reporters.

“The player wants to renew his contract and the club want him to renew it too, so I don’t think it’s going to be a problem.

“Really I don't know [when he will sign], because it's between the player and the club.

“I don’t know when it will happen, but I am certain that Cristiano is going to renew his contract with Madrid.”
