Cristiano Ronaldo intends to finish his career at Manchester United and could subsequently move into a coaching role which may see him overseeing his son’s progress.
Ronaldo signed a two-year deal with an option for a third year when he rejoined United from Juventus last month and wants to carry on playing for as long as possible.
Ronaldo wants to subsequently continue his association with United by becoming part of the coaching staff.
It is possible that Ronaldo could eventually end up coaching his son, Cristiano Jr, with the 11-year-old having started training with United’s youth teams.
Cristiano Jr previously played for Juventus at youth level and scored four goals on his debut at the age of nine.
Earlier this month Cristiano Jr was assessed by coaches at United’s Littleton Road training complex in Salford.
Ronaldo has scored four goals in three appearances since his return to United.
The 36-year-old has a strong connection with United having enjoyed much success during his initial spell at the club from 2003 to 2009.
During that time Ronaldo won the Champions League, three Premier League titles, the FA Cup and two League Cups.
