The 28-year-old Portuguese forward, whose previous deal had been due to run out in 2015, expressed delight at agreeing terms after speculation in the summer he could be tempted back to Manchester United.

"Manchester is in the past," Ronaldo said. "Now my club is Real Madrid. This is my home, my family is here and I'm really happy here."
