While Cristiano Ronaldo still seems fit enough to play another five years, all he will do is expand the number of records. However, Real Madrid has a stellar reputation for being a ruthless club when it comes to underperforming players.
Some say, “It would be better to weigh options beforehand and leave as a legend than suffer a fate like Iker Casillas.”
5. Future In Marco Asensio
People always say it is impossible to replace a legend owing to his heroic exploits on the pitch. But the Palma-born youngster has already shown signs of being a future great with impressive performances in times of need. So much that the Madrid fans flooded the social media by the question “Who needs Ronaldo?”
Asensio proved influential in the El Clasico games and further in the Portuguese’s absence. To add to his praise, Zidane already regards the boy’s left foot second to Lionel Messi.
4. The tax Issues
Ronaldo’s fans rejoiced to the zenith on the news of Messi being possibly jailed for a tax fraud years ago. But, little did they know that their legend would be the victim of an embezzlement much greater compared to his Argentine counterpart.
Apparently, the Real Madrid talisman was the subject of a tax evasion worth €14.7 million from his image rights. To add to his woes, his agent Jorge Mendes was also dragged into the feud with the tax authorities. He better pack his bags and be back at Carrington.
3. A change of scenario
Ronaldo and Messi are known to lock their horns against each other since the first minute of a new La Liga season. However, Ronaldo has fallen miles behind the Barca forward, owing to his five-match ban. And with his return, Ronaldo hasn’t been effective in the La Liga owing to his scoring drought in the last three matches.
2. Nothing left to prove at Real Madrid
No doubt Ronaldo has won every vital award a legend has to have in his trophy cabinet. A move to United might be even more appealing as he would have new targets to strike at Old Trafford.
Ronaldo already has 118 goals for the Red Devils. Considering his ability to score at least 30+ goals per season for over the next four seasons; might see him become EPL and Man United’s all-time top scorer. He will be the first player in history to be an all-time top scorer for two different clubs.
1. He deserves to be loved
It is no secret that the Manchester-based club holds a special place in his heart. Real Madrid fans have never exactly adored their legend the way he should be. Ronaldo has been a victim to constant booing from the Bernabeu supporters. That would never have been the case with him at Old Trafford.
However, his arrival might have its negatives. Anthony Martial would certainly think of moving; also, CR7 would be reluctant on working with Ibrahimovic, who shares a similar ego as he himself.
