Cristiano Ronaldo’s compatriot, Bruno Alves, has added his voice to the speculation surrounding the latter’s potential exit from Spain.
The 35-year-old defender has completed his move from Cagliari to Rangers for an undisclosed fee. The deal will see the Portuguese centre-back playing for the Scottish side until 2019 when he will turn 37. Alves was queried by the media this morning so as to give fans of his new club a fair idea of what their expectations should be ahead of the new season.
After putting everything out there, the former Porto, Fenerbahce and Zenith Saint-Petersburg man, surprisingly, concluded with some few words citing what Cristiano Ronaldo’s stance will probably be at the end of this summer’s transfer window.
BA: I know there is an expectation on me but like always I am looking forward to putting the jersey on and giving my best for the team.

“I think it would be difficult for Ronaldo to leave Real Madrid. It is hard to find a better club but football is full of surprises.
“In my personal opinion, I think Ronaldo will remain at Real Madrid,” Bruno was quoted to have said via Rangers‘ Twitter page.
