Cristiano Ronaldo’s club future may be unclear but Portugal coach Fernando Santos insists the 36-year-old is dreaming about playing at and winning next year’s World Cup.
Ronaldo has been linked with a move away from Juventus this close season, including speculation linking him with MLS, along with a possible return to Real Madrid.
Amid that, Santos moved to clarify that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was committed to playing for Portugal at the World Cup as they chase their maiden Jules Rimet Trophy.
“[Cristiano] has a big dream, that one I know,” Santos said.
“He has this big dream of participating in what we are setting out to do, that is the goal of playing in a World Cup and winning it.
“That is the main goal, the rest has to stay away from the national team.”
