Cristiano Ronaldo is set to hang up his Manchester United boots, as he has stated that he intends to remain at the club for longer than his initial two-year contract. In addition, the Portuguese star wants to enter coaching and oversee the development of his son Cristiano Jr., who just turned 11 this summer. The father-son duo played for Juventus youth sides during his father’s time at the club. At nine years old, the youngster scored four goals on his debut!
He is expected to concentrate on coaching in the future
The current project may not deliver silverware anytime soon, but Ronaldo’s senior sources at the club believe that he will still be able to play for United for many years to come. If he retires, United are likely to be willing to extend the contract to another year. The player is also expected to focus on coaching in the future. The Portuguese has already signed a new contract with Manchester Utd until the 2022-23 season, with an option to extend it by another year.
Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United is uncertain, as there is no clear indication of when he will hang up his boots. According to a source at the club, he would be happy to continue playing until his 40s if he’s offered a coaching role. However, it is not known how long Ronaldo will stay at the club, and it has not been confirmed whether he will continue to play until his retirement.
