Cristiano Ronaldo, the Manchester United superstar, has revealed that he wants to play for at least another four years, putting him in his forties.
After spells at Real Madrid and Juventus, Ronaldo returned to Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford has not gone as well as hoped, with United currently sitting in sixth place in the Premier League, despite the fact that he has demonstrated that he is still an elite goalscorer.
This season, the Portuguese superstar has 14 goals in all competitions for United, and he has stated his desire to play at the highest level for the foreseeable future.

“For better or worse, life hаs importаnt moments, but you must hаve the strength to get up when you fаll.” I’m content, аnd I’d like to stаy аnd see whаt hаppens.
