Ronaldo joined Man United in the summer of 2003 from hometown club Sporting Lisbon. The striker was born in 1985 and spent 6 years playing football at Old Trafford before officially moving to Real in 2009.
At that time, Los Blancos spent a transfer fee of 80 million pounds to sign a contract with the Portuguese star, thereby making Ronaldo the most expensive player in the world.
Despite setting a transfer record, former midfielder Keane, who spent 2 years playing with Ronaldo at Man United, believes that the White Vultures bought the 38-year-old striker at a bargain price.
“People always talk about whether Ronaldo is worth the £80 million price tag but In my opinion it’s too cheap”, Keane said on The Mirror. “He was one of the best players in the world at that time, while Real was always among the richest clubs on the planet.”
Ronaldo then spent 9 years serving for the Spanish Royal Club. The Portuguese star scored 450 goals in 438 matches, winning many big and small titles at the Santiago Bernabeu, the most notable of which are 2 La Liga championships and 4 Champions League crowns. In addition, the striker born in 1985 also won 4 Golden Balls during his time with Los Blancos.
In 2018, Ronaldo decided to leave the capital club Madrid to join Juventus.
