Juventus star man Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that he could potentially retire from professional football as early as next year.

Speaking to Portuguese channel TVI, Ronaldo said: “I don’t think about that. Maybe I can leave my career next year but I can also play up to 40 or 41.

“I don’t know. What I always say is to enjoy the moment. The gift is excellent and I have to continue to enjoy it.”

The 34-year-old left Real Madrid for Juventus last summer and enjoyed a superb debut season in Italy’s top-tier where he won the Serie A title and the Italian Super Cup.

He then added to his international honours this summer as he captained his side to victory in the Nations League final against the Netherlands; the two feats handing him a place in the FIFA Best top three where he will fight for the accolade against Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk and Lionel Messi of Barcelona.

Ronaldo added on his records: “Are there any soccer players who have more records than me? I don’t think there are any footballers who have more records than me.”

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United star made 43 appearances across all competitions and scored an impressive 28 times and assisted ten times.
