Just In: Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo addresses retirement question

Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo reiterated he has no intention of retiring from international football, as he revealed he wants to play for Portugal at the 2024 European Championship.

Ronaldo, 37, expressed it was his desire to leave United in the summer but remains at the club and will play a role in Erik ten Hag’s squad until January at the earliest.

Ten Hag consistently denied reports that Ronaldo would leave the club across the summer and the forward scored his first goal of the season against FC Sheriff last week. Ronaldo has started just three matches this term after returning late to pre-season.

Ronaldo was named in Portugal’s squad for this month’s Nations League fixtures and he is set to play at the Qatar World Cup. Ronaldo broke the all-time international scoring record last year and he remains a key part of Portugal’s plans on the international stage.

He was presented with an award at a Portuguese Football Federation ceremony on Tuesday and he informed the audience of his plans for the future, explaining that he intends to represent his nation at Euro 2024, which will be hosted in Germany.

“It has been a long road, but I would like to take the opportunity to say that my road is not over yet,” Ronaldo said via Goal. “I feel motivated, my ambition is high. I am in the selection with a lot of young players and I want to be part of this World Cup and the 2024 Euros as well, I assume now.”

Ronaldo will celebrate his 38th birthday in February and he would be aged 39 should he play at Euro 2024. His contract at Old Trafford expires in the summer of 2023 but there is the option for an additional year, should United and Ronaldo both agree to it.
