Ancelotti 'Certain' of Ronaldo Stay

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti is "certain" Cristiano Ronaldo will sign a new contract with the club.

Ronaldo's future has been shrouded in doubt in recent weeks amid speculation linking him with a return to former employers Manchester United.

Ancelotti, however, expects Ronaldo, who has two years left on his existing deal, to soon commit his future to Los Blancos.

"I am confident Cristiano will renew," Ancelotti told a press conference. "I think he is comfortable here and I don't think it will be a problem.

"I don't know about a date because that is an issue between the player and the club, but one thing is certain: Cristiano will renew his contract."
 
Meanwhile, Ancelotti declined to discuss Real's pursuit of Tottenham star Gareth Bale.

"I would rather not speak about it [Bale's transfer] because it would be disrespectful to [Blues boss] Andre Villas-Boas," said Ancelotti.

"I do not want to talk about the player. The team is strong, young and I am very happy with the current squad."

Real are thought to be willing to fork out £86m for Bale, which would better the £80m world record fee they paid for Ronaldo to United in 2009.
