Portuguese legend, Cristiano Ronaldo has often been considered among the greatest footballers in history. It remains unclear when the 39-year-old superstar will hang his boots now that he’s in the twilight of his career.

Cristiano Ronaldo Retirement- When will Ronaldo Retire?

Despite keeping himself in the best possible shape, Cristiano Ronaldo will be turning 40 in February 2025 and many believed the summer 2024 European Championships would be his last major international tournament.

In 2023, Ronaldo bagged the most goals than any active footballer on this planet, 44 for Al Nassr and another 10 for the national side. His record 54 goals was two more than Harry Kane who was the second most prolific goalscorer last year.

But when will Ronaldo retire? According to the news outlet, Cadena COPE, Ronaldo has asked Al Nassr to extend his contract until the summer of 2027 which will allow him to participate in the 2026 World Cup co-hosted by USA, Mexico and Canada.

Earlier, Ronaldo indicated that the summer European Championship would be his last international tournament but now the Real Madrid and Manchester United legend has set sight on another international tournament.

However, it doesn’t appear that the Al Nassr man would want to retire anytime soon. Despite winning the Euro 2016 and the UEFA Nations League with Portugal, the record goalscorer has never won the World Cup and became the first-ever player to secure 200 international caps in 2023.

Ronaldo stated his ambition to reach 250 caps which means he could participate in the 2026 World Cup. We know for a fact that Cristiano Ronaldo retirement news would send the world into a frenzy.
