Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez has said Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest player he has ever signed and he is his favorite Galactico.
Luis Figo, Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham, Kaka and the two Ronaldos are some of those to have been acquired in big-money deals, but Perez has had his pick.
The President also revealed why it was only time for Ronaldo to move on.
His words, “I assumed he wanted new challenges and he took advantage of that moment to embrace them.
“Cristiano was an exemplary professional who never caused problems.
“He’s the greatest player I ever signed and my relationship with him was always excellent, both as a player and a man. We didn’t have any problems regarding money.
“There were rumours about him wanting to leave because of the tax case, but that’s not the reality of the situation. He wanted a change and to improve his contract, so he found it at Juventus and everyone was happy.”
“It’s hard to find a replacement for someone like Cristiano, but we had good players anyway, such as Gareth Bale, Marco Asensio, Vinicius.
“I don’t think that was the problem this season.”
