Back In 2018, Check Out The Primary Reasons Why Cristiano Ronaldo Left Real Madrid For Juventus.

Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that a change in his connection with Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez pushed him to leave the club after a brilliant nine-year stay.


Ronaldo left Spain as Real's all-time leading goalscorer after joining Juventus for about €100 million in July. The transfer was carried out “at the player's will and request,” according to the club. In an interview with France Football, Ronaldo said that Pérez's attitude toward him had shifted.

“I realized within the club, particularly from the president, that they no longer saw me in the same way as they had when I first joined,” says the author. "For the first four or five years, I thought I was Cristiano Ronaldo," the author says. There were fewer after that. The president looked at me with eyes that didn't want to express the same thing, as if I wasn't as essential to them as I used to be, if you catch my drift.

“I was considering quitting because of it. I'd switch on the TV every now and again to see if they'd reported that I'd requested to go. Although there was some of that, I always had the idea that the president would not hold me back. If money had been the only consideration, I would have gone to China and earned five times as much as I do here [at Juventus] or at Real Madrid. I didn't come to Juventus because of the money. I made the same, if not more, in Madrid. The difference is that they truly wanted me at Juve. They told me that and were very explicit about it.” That was demonstrated to me.

“While the president stated that he was looking for me, he also stated that leaving would not be an issue.

When asked if the manager's decision to quit after leading the team to a third consecutive European Cup victory influenced his decision, Ronaldo responded, "It had no influence on my decision to leave because he left." As a result, it's one of those minor details that made me feel a little better about the situation at the club.”
