The 27-year-old Portuguese striker’s contract with Real runs out in June 2015 but Spanish media have reported that he is unhappy at the club and may leave at the end of the season.
The player has been linked to a move to Paris Saint-Germain or back to Manchester United.
“I want to see out my contract at Real Madrid: I’m very clear about that. After that, well, I don’t know what will happen in the future,” he said in an interview published on FIFA.com.
Ronaldo, who joined Real Madrid from Manchester United in 2009, said he still believes it is possible for the club to win La Liga despite falling 18 points behind leader Barcelona.
“We haven’t started the championship very well for sure. We know that La Liga’s an uphill struggle for us now, but nothing is impossible in football,” he said.
“We’re going to work hard, win games and see what happens. And of course, there’s the Champions League and the Copa del Rey, too.”
