Ronaldo is convinced David Beckham to stay in La Liga this summer despite reports linking the England captain with a return to The Premiership.

Beckham has been linked with a move to Chelsea, with one of the contenders to become next president of the Spanish club admitting he would sell Beckham if he wins this summer’s presidential election.

However, Ronaldo wants the former Manchester United player to stay.

“David still has a long time left on his contract and he is very happy with everything in Madrid,” said Ronaldo.

“He has had a very good season in his first year and he is determined to stay and make next year even better, that is why I don’t think he will leave Spain.

“David covers a lot of ground during matches and he provides me with lots of great crosses which is good for me.

“I am delighted to be playing alongside him in Madrid.”
