Real Madrid boss Bernd Schuster believes Cristiano Ronaldo will play for the Spanish champions at some point in his career.
The Portuguese winger has been constantly linked with a move to the Primera Liga and Schuster is confident he will eventually grace the Bernabeu.
The German told Spanish television channel Noticias Cuatro: 'Sooner or later, Cristiano Ronaldo will wear the white shirt. I hope that it is when I am still at the club.'
Ronaldo was non-committal about his Old Trafford future after helping his side beat Chelsea in the Champions League final last night, despite missing a penalty in the shootout.
And Schuster, who led Real to a second straight Primera Liga crown this season, claims the Spanish side cannot afford to miss out on the free-scoring forward should he leave Manchester.
He added: 'If there is any chance of signing him, Real Madrid have to try it.'
