4 records broken by Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018
2. Most expensive footballer (30 years old or older)
Cristiano Ronaldo sent shock waves around the footballing world in the summer of 2018 by announcing that he would be leaving Real Madrid after spending the peak of his career at the Spanish giants.
If you had told someone that Ronaldo was going to leave Real Madrid most would've assumed he would return to his former club Manchester United. However, in typical Ronaldo fashion, he moved to Juventus to test himself in another league.
With Ronaldo being sold to Juventus for £105 million the footballing legend set a record for being the most expensive player over the age of 30 in history.
What's truly remarkable about this record is that it shows that Ronaldo is still at the pinnacle of football, and where most would be considering retirement or travelling to lesser leagues in America or China, Ronaldo opts to move to Italy.
