Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has pledged his allegiance to his club till the end of his current contract period, putting to rest media speculation linking him to a move away from Madrid at the end of this season.
Ronaldo, who has been regularly linked to a possible return to former club Manchester United in recent years, has a little over two years left in his current contract.
The three-time Ballon d'Or winner, however, is intent on fulfilling his current contract with the record 10-time European champions.
"This is the best league in the world, although I also played in the Premiership. It's fantastic, competitive, and with great players.
"It is a privilege to leave my mark on it. I want to stay here two more years. And the future, we'll see. The two years I'm talking about take me to the end of my contract," Ronaldo was quoted as saying by leading Spanish publication AS.
The 31-year old footballer is currently in his 7th season at Real, where he has won a Champions League, a La Liga and Copa Del Rey title, among the major honours.
