Cristiano Ronaldo has one career goal he still wants to accomplish that could see him play on for years

Cristiano Ronaldo has one career goal he still wants to accomplish that could see him play on for years

Cristiano Ronaldo is 39 but still has no plans to retire from football, with one specific goal in mind.

Cristiano Ronaldo's final career goal before retirement has been revealed after a disappointing Euro 2024 campaign.

Ronaldo participated in a record-breaking sixth European Championship but did not have a productive tournament, failing to score and being criticised for both his performances and antics.

Portugal were knocked out on penalties by France in the quarter finals, with Joao Felix producing a costly miss.

It's been reported that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner still has aspirations of competing at the 2026 World Cup in North America.

Ronaldo will be in his 40s by the time the tournament rolls around but there is another claim as to why the Al Nassr star wishes to continue playing.

According to former Chelsea striker Adrian Mutu, the ex Manchester United and Real Madrid star is desperate to play a competitive fixture with his son, Cristiano Jr.

The youngster, who spent time in the youth set-up, at both Juventus and United is only 14 but is training two years above his age in the Al Nassr academy.

Mutu went to see Ronaldo back in May and believes father and son playing alongside one another is possible.

Speaking to iAM SPORT in Romania, via the Daily Mail, Mutu said: "That's his real motivation. The fact he wants to play an official match with his boy and that's why he doesn't give up.

"Well, at Al Nassr, it's possible. If he was at another team, I don't know, Real Madrid, it would be more difficult.

"But to play a half (together), in a year, I don't think it's impossible."

Cristiano Jr is seen as a real talent with an eye for goal and he himself has already expressed a desire to share the pitch with his dad.

In 2022, Ronaldo said: "My son tells me, 'Dad hold on a few more years - I want to play with you.'

"Only time will tell. I will never pressure him [to play football]. He will do what he wants."
