Real Madrid No2 Aitor Karanka is confident Cristiano Ronaldo wants to stay.

Ronaldo struck in victory over Malaga last night.

"The coach has already answered questions about Ronaldo. The kind of player he is and the club where he is, Real Madrid, are good for each other. He will keep getting better. Here is the ideal place and for Real Madrid it is great to have him," said Karanka.
