Real Madrid have announced a contract extension for Cristiano Ronaldo which will see the Portuguese star remain at the club until 2021.

The club's record goalscorer, who will be presented to the fans at the Bernabeu on Monday, has added a further three years to his previous contract, which was set to expire in the summer of 2018.

Madrid official statement regarding the deal read "The official event for the renewal of Cristiano Ronaldo's contract will take place tomorrow, Monday 7 November at 1:30pm in the presidential box at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium.

"The Portuguese forward will extend his contract until 30 June 2021 at the event attended by club president Florentino Pérez and the player himself."

The news comes in the wake of new deals for midfielders Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, and most recently Gareth Bale.

Bale, the club's record signing, penned a new deal this week which will reportedly see him earn close to €400,000 a week after tax, before inspiring his side to a 3-0 win over Leganes with a brace this weekend.
