Ronaldo hints at Real Madrid exit

Madrid: Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo has hinted that he is planning a future away from the Bernabeu.

Ronaldo, who moved to Madrid from Manchester United for a world-record transfer fee of 80 million pounds last summer, insists he will not spend the rest of his career with the club.

"Football is all about cycles. I believe that you are in teams for cycles. I spent several years wanting to play in Madrid, but I don`t see myself here at 40," The Daily Express quoted Ronaldo, as saying.

His comment surprisingly comes weeks after Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said that Ronaldo could make a sensational return to Old Trafford.

Talking about his decision to leave United, Ronaldo said: "Alex Ferguson understood my decision. I continue to talk to him."

The 25-year-old also expressed disappointment over the prospect of ending the season without any silverware.

"It would be a bad year if we don`t win the league because a club like this has to always win something every year," Ronaldo said.

"Not winning this year wouldn`t be a failure, but it would be a lost year. But I am confident we can win the league," he added.
