In the summer of 2009, Ronaldo joined Real Madrid with the most expensive contract in the history of world football at that time. But today, the value of Ronaldo has greatly decreased in the UEFA Champions League 2019.
Ronaldo dropped dramatically after 2 years
Real Madrid not only earned every penny after spending 94 million euros to buy Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer of 2009. Moreover, the Spanish Royal team is also very profitable. The Portuguese superstar contributes greatly to the team in 4 Champions League titles of this team, along with many other big and small titles. Not only that, in the summer of 2018, Ronaldo still helped Real Madrid earn 105 million euros.
When joining Juventus, Ronaldo was 33 years old. However, with a fee of 105 million euros, CR7 is still the most expensive player in the summer of 2018. Only, when he is at the age of hash, the Portuguese superstar can no longer maintain the peak performance as he was exploded with Real Madrid. Currently, although he still plays well at the UEFA Champions League 2019, the decline by age is inevitable.
Recently, the statistics and evaluation page of Transfermakrt player posted a summary of the 11-star squad with the representative of “super stork” Jorge Mendes. Cristiano Ronaldo is the leader of the attack, but worth mentioning that his transfer value has dropped to only 75 million euros (less than the Portugal junior Bernardo Silva is valued at 100 million euros).
Poorly inferior, should Juventus sell Ronaldo urgently?
According to the latest updates, the 35-year-old striker has fallen out of the top 4 most expensive players in Serie A, behind Paulo Dybala (90 million euros), Christian Eriksen (85 million euros), Romelu Lukaku (85 million euros), Milinkovic-Savic (80 million euros).
Despite turning 35, Ronaldo still possesses a remarkable goalscoring record this season with 25 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions. However, if Ronaldo cannot help Juventus to lift the Champions League curse in this 2019/20 season, it is very likely that the Turin team will consider the plan to liquidate the Portuguese player, in order to remove the gauze. invested in this player in 2018.
Ronaldo’s contract with Juventus is still valid until June 30, 2022. If that contract is completed, CR7 will be 37 years old and perhaps considering retiring. However, that also means Juventus lost 105 million euros spent, without collecting any money.
It is estimated that if Ronaldo completes the 4-year contract signed in the summer of 2018, this deal will cost Juventus up to 225 million euros, including 105 million euros in transfer fees and 120 million euros in wages for this player.
The first season, Ronaldo failed to help Juventus end the Champions League curse. This second season, the army of coach Maurizio Sarri is facing numerous difficulties after a 0-1 defeat at Lyon in the eighth round. If the Serie A champion continues to fail, then the Ronaldo deal is a gamble where the Turin people have lost.
What Ronaldo has been doing for Juventus – from a professional perspective, really does not match the expectations of President Andrea Agnelli as well as the leaders of this team. Last season, Ronaldo was named the best player in Serie A, contributing to the team’s championship. However, the fact that Juventus has won this tournament for 7 consecutive years without the presence of CR7.
The number of goals scored by Ronaldo in the Champions League for Juventus after 16 matches are 8 goals, far lower than the period in Real Madrid. And this UEFA Champions League 2019 season, CR7 and his teammates are also in danger of being eliminated from the first knockout round after losing to Lyon in the first leg.
