When will Cristiano Ronaldo retire?

Despite suggestions calling on Ronaldo to retire, the former Real Madrid superstar is unlikely to hang his boots soon.

The Portugal international has previously revealed his intent to continue playing at a high level until his 40s.

"I want to find out if I'm going to play until I'm 40, 41, or 42, but the most important thing is that my daily goal is to enjoy the moment," Ronaldo divulged to ESPN.
