Yes, Cristiano Ronaldo may still be in his prime and playing some of the best soccer of his career, but that isn’t stopping him from planning ahead.

The 32-year old revealed in an interview with Sky Italia that he plans on venturing into acting, and starring in a few Hollywood movies once everything is all said and done.

“I am focused right now because my football career will finish one day – we all have to retire one day…I know that day will come. But right now, I am enjoying the moment. When I am retired, I think I will have a good life. I don’t say that because of money.” said Ronaldo.

“I want to try other things; for example, to do movies. I started to plan my future when I was 27, 28 – a long time ago, I began preparing.

“I have a good team, who work in my company, who start to build good things going forward. In football, I am very calm because I know they depend on me.”

Ronaldo, who is in his ninth season with Real Madrid, has already scored a combined 16 goals in 22 appearances in 2017/18. He is also not too far removed from winning his fifth FIFA Player of the Year award and leading Portugal to a Euro 2016 title, so don’t expect retirement to happen any time soon.

This could mean a possible move to MLS towards the end of his career so he can further establish himself in the North American market before making the move to acting.
