Madrid: Real Madrid icon Raul has taken the time to praise Cristiano Ronaldo and expects the Portugal international to remain with the Santiago Bernabeu side for the foreseeable future.
Ronaldo`s agent Jorge Mendes revealed on Friday that the prolific attacker`s future at the Blancos is uncertain amid ongoing reports that Paris Saint-Germain are keen to lure the 28-year-old away from his current club.
Nevertheless, Raul expects his former team-mate to stay at the Spanish giants and shared his respect for a player whom he believes is a truly world class attacker.
"He is at Real Madrid now and I think his future is there too. But it`s ultimately up to him," the current Al Sadd attacker told Le 10 Sport.
"Cristiano is a top player and a top professional. I spent a year alongside him and I`m full of admiration for him."
Ronaldo has a contract with Madrid until the summer of 2015.
