Ronaldo joined Los Blancos in the summer of 2009 from English club Manchester United F.C. Since then, he has netted 371 goals for the club. Spending seven seasons with Real Madrid, Ronaldo has won two UEFA Champions League trophies, both against their city rivals Atlético de Madrid, and one La Liga title. He has also won two Copa del Rey, one Supercopa de España, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup.

Per the previous contract, Ronaldo was tied to the club till July 2018. The Daily Mail reported Ronaldo would probably continue to earn about £365,000 (€410,000) per week.

This year, Ronaldo won the UEFA Champions League in Milan, scoring the winning penalty, and in July he won the UEFA Euro 2016 with Portugal. Almost a year ago, last season, Ronaldo became Real Madrid's top scorer breaking the previous record of Raúl's 323 goals.

In the press conference, Ronaldo expressed his desire to play till the age of 41 saying, "I'm going to be here for another five years, but let it be known this will not be my last contract". When asked about his retirement, he said, "No-one knows what the future holds."

A week ago, the club announced Welsh forward Gareth Bale had signed a six-year contract extension.
