It’s in the Museum at the Bernabeu Stadium and it’s also in the minds of every fan of the club. And beyond what I achieved, I remember that in those nine years I had a relationship of deep affection and respect for ‘merengue afición,’ an affection and respect that I retain to this day, and that I will always cherish. I know that the true Real Madrid fans will continue to have me in their hearts, and I will have them in mine.”

Another one of the rumours that concern Ronaldo is his possibility of joining Paris Saint-Germain. The French club has gone on a shopping spree of superstar players this summer, the biggest of which is Ronaldo’s arch rival Lionel Messi. Kylian Mbappe has expressed his desire to leave the club next summer, with Real Madrid as his prime target. As a replacement PSG has proposed acquiring Ronaldo and pairing him up with Messi for what would be a historic team-up.
For their part, the Daily Mail has reported that Messi’s move has “hurt Ronaldo’s self-esteem,” and had has made him consider joining Manchester City in the Premier League. This is a bold move, as the Portuguese played for City’s nemesis Manchester United for six years and is considered a legend there.
Just like Messi’s exit from Barca, Ronaldo’s status at Juventus will be one to follow for the rest of the season. We will see how this issue unfolds in the coming weeks.
