Is Cristiano Ronaldo the best investment ever made by Real Madrid?

Cristiano Ronaldo‘s time at Real Madrid will probably never be matched. The forward signed for Los Blancos from Manchester United for €94 million in 2009. He went on to spend nine years with the Spanish giants, and finished as their all-time top scorer with a tally of 451 goals in 438 games for the club. 

During his nine seasons with Madrid, he went on to win four Champions League titles, three Club World Cups and UEFA Super Cups apiece, two La Liga titles, a pair of Copas del Rey and two Spanish Super Cups. Ronaldo also won four of his five Ballon d’Or awards while playing in the famous white shirt.

The forward also went on to become the top scorer of all-time in the Champions League with 105 goals for Los Blancos. He also holds the record for the most goals scored in a single season by a Real Madrid player (61) and the most expensive goals scored by a Madridista as well with 312 to his name. 

Cristiano Ronaldo will always remain an iconic name associated with Real Madrid, and he was eventually sold to Juventus for €100 million in 2018. The Portugal captain went on to score over 100 goals for the Italian side before returning to Manchester United and then, moving to Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr.
