Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the greatest player in history and some fans believe he is the best player in Real Madrid history having watched him for nine years break unbelievable club and European records. The 35-year-old is still the first and only player in Madrid’s history to score 451 goals and 132 assists in just 438 appearances.
That phenomenal goal scoring streaks enabled Real Madrid win 17 trophies in 9 years including 4 Champions League trophies of which 3 where won in succession.
Ronaldo might be 35-years-old but the Portuguese captain still remains one of the best goal scorers in the world and without doubt, Real Madrid need a player like that. A remarkable striker who can score the goals needed to win domestic trophies and hopefully, the Champions League.
Although, Real Madrid will have to adjust his role by playing him more centrally rather than in the wings were he caused havoc in the past and scored a lot of goals.
Why? Ronaldo no longer have the energy to boomerang up and down the flanks due to age.
He now takes more time to recover and easily gets bruised or injured when tackled hard. Right now, Ronaldo is top striker who won’t need more than two invitations to score goals.
If Real Madrid do sign him he will massively help in reducing the goal burden on Karim Benzema, Sergio Ramos, Casemiro and even Vinicius Jr.
