3 players who can replace Ronaldo at Real Madrid
Cristiano Ronaldo, the star Portuguese was signed by Real Madrid back in 2009 from Manchester United. In his nine years with Real, the Portuguese has won everything at the club and the individual level. Being hailed as the 'best in the world', there are no doubts about his abilities.
The coming summer, Ronaldo will be turning 33 and entering the dwindling stages of his career. The Portuguese has struggled at Real lately with age catching up with him. He appears to be losing his effectiveness day by day. Though finding a replacement for the current Ballon d'Or winner is going to be a mammoth task, we take a look at the players who could replace Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid.
#3 Neymar Jr
The name would certainly raise some eyebrows but Neymar is currently the best footballer in the world behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. The Brazilian has an amazing goal scoring record for both club and country. Not to mention his immense brand image which could reap some heavy dividends for Real Madrid after Ronaldo's departure.
Neymar moved to PSG only in 2017 for a world record fee of €222 million and has set the French League on fire since his arrival. The 26-year-old has 26 goals and 16 assists in 25 appearances this season. However, a move for the Brazilian would not come cheap for the Spanish Champions as they may well have to smash the world record fee by almost a double.
