Real Madrid have confirmed that forward Cristiano Ronaldo is to extend his contract at the club, committing to Los Blancos until 30 June 2021.

Three-year extension at Real

In a statement on their website on Sunday, Real revealed Cristiano will put pen to paper on renewed terms in a ceremony at the Bernabéu on Monday at 13:30 CET.

The 31-year-old Portugal captain, whose previous deal was due to expire in 2018, is set to net a substantial pay rise as part of the agreement.

Cristiano celebrates Real's 2015/16 Champions League win, his second since joining Los Merengues.

Madrid's highest ever scorer

Since moving to Madrid in summer 2009, Cristiano has won one LaLiga title, two Copas del Rey, two Champions Leagues, one Spanish Super Cup, two UEFA Super Cups and one FIFA Club World Cup, in addition to two FIFA Ballons d'Or.

He has netted 371 goals in 360 Real appearances in all competitions, overtaking Raúl González Blanco as the capital club's all-time leading scorer in 2015.

The former Manchester United and Sporting Lisbon man also helped his national side to glory at the 2016 European Championship in France in July.
