Real Madrid fans were pleased to hear that the team's star striker, Cristiano Ronaldo has signed a new deal that will keep him at the club until 2021.

CR7 hasn't scored in five successive games at the Bernabeu Stadium, an almost unheard of drought for the prolific Portuguese, but the new contract will make him the top man at least in terms of money.

On Monday, Ronaldo officially signed the extension with Los Blancos that will keep him at the Spanish La Liga side until 2021.

The Portuguese international is reported to be in line for an increase in his current salary, estimated to be 21 million euros, making him the highest-paid player at the club.

Ronaldo is Real's all-time leading scorer with 371 goals in 360 games, having collected one La Liga title, two King's Cups and two Champions League titles. By 2021, Ronaldo will be 36 years old, but the super striker hopes this won't be his last contract.

He said:" It's a unique moment in my life to renew another five years with this club. It's not my last contract, I want to make that clear here.

"Obviously it's a special moment, I never expected to make history in the best club in the world. I'm looking at my mom's eyes and I see an enormous spark, so scoring or not scoring, that's not as important as you may think.

"I admit sometimes I can show a bit of anxiety, but it's not anxiety. A person who is used to scoring, when he doesn't, can get a bit down, but it's ok, that's part of life.

"As any other person would, I admit I can go through good and bad moments, but at this time I'm going through the best time of my life."
