"If Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid, he will be eternally grateful to the club, the president, all the directors, the medical staff, all the staff without exception, as well as all the Madrid fans around the world". I can only thank everyone for the love and affection I have received.
The fact he did not enjoy unblighted adoration from the club despite everything he had done for them clearly annoyed Ronaldo, as did the fact that he was not offered new bloated contracts every time he asked for them.
"They have been absolutely wonderful for nine years. I have thought about it a lot, and I know that the time has come for a new cycle", wrote Cristiano in a letter published on Real Madrid's website. I have felt the warmth of an incredible fan base and together we have conquered three straight Champions Leagues titles and four Champions League titles over five years. All this during my time at this extraordinary club. During these nine exciting years I have faced great players.

"These years in Real Madrid, have been possibly the happiest of my life".

"It would be the best advertising for Italian football". Cristiano joined Real Madrid in 2009, after six years with Manchester United.
On the same day Messi, with whom Ronaldo has long competed for the title of the world's best, was sent home empty-handed by a French side inspired by a breathtaking performance from 19-year-old Kylian Mbappe. One is buying a short-term option like Robert Lewandwoski, whose record at bayern Munich suggests he should be able to make a good portion of Ronaldo's goals. They are calling it the deal of the century in Italy. The issue with Hazard will likely be his age; the Belgian is 27 and doesn't fit Madrid's recent transfer model of buying talented young stars.
