Former Real Madrid midfielder Luis Figo has urged star striker Cristiano Ronaldo to resist offers from other clubs and continue to remain with the European Champions.
Figo’s comments comes after the Portuguese star striker recently cast doubt over his stay at Madrid by saying that he would be making a decision on his future in the coming days.
A few minutes after guiding Madrid to a third Champions League trophy in three years, Ronaldo had said, “In [the] coming days, there’ll be an answer about my future. It has been very nice playing for Real Madrid.”
Though Ronaldo later clarified his comments have been taken out of context, he has been linked with a move to former club Manchester United and French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
When asked about the same, Figi insisted, “I hope that Cristiano stays like all Real Madrid fans.”
“One day he will stop playing and Real Madrid will continue to be one of the best clubs in the world,” goal.com quoted Figo, as saying.
Ronaldo is all set to feature for Portugal in this month’s World Cup, beginning June 14. Portugal are grouped with Spain, Morocco and Iran.
