Cristiano Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes has confirmed that Juventus will be the Portugal captain's last club before he retires from playing.

Ronaldo, 33, penned a four-year contract worth £500,000 per week with the Serie A giants earlier this week when he called time on his nine-season spell at Real Madrid. There had been suggestions that the former Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United star could be tempted by a lucrative move to either China or the US towards the end of his career, but Mendes expects him to hang up his boots in Turin

'I'm very happy for Cristiano,' Mendes told Sport. 'Juventus will be his last club and I'm glad he made this decision. With this team he'll close out his marvellous career. '

Mendes, who made £10.6million from Ronaldo's £100m transfer to Italy, added: 'I thank (Juventus president) Andrea Agnelli in particular for his determination and his willingness to negotiate with Real Madrid. Ronaldo's new team and his former side face each other at Maryland's FedExField in the International Champions Cup on August 4.
