'Ronaldo Will Stay At Real'
'Cristiano Ronaldo Will Stay At Real Madrid'
Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will not be leaving Los Blancos this season, according to one of his former teammates.
The 32-year-old has been linked with a move away from the La Liga champions amid reports that he has defrauded Spanish tax authorities to the tune of €14.7million (R212 million).
However, former Los Blancos defender Alvaro Arbeloa believes Ronaldo will be on the pitch for the Spanish giants once again in the 2017/18 season.
"He is very intelligent. When the perfect moment arrives to speak, he will," the former Liverpool fullback told El Chiringuito TV.
"We must give him our vote of confidence. He is our franchise player and we trust him fully.
"Everyone knows him perfectly. He doesn't hide. He will say that he is still in Madrid, I have no doubt."
The Portugal captain has been linked with a return to his former club Manchester United and Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.
Since making the move to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2009, Ronaldo has won three UEFA Champions League titles and two La Liga crowns.
