After nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid to join Juventus, a decision that left the fans confused, since the Portuguese had just won the Champions League for the third time with the Spanish giants.
Spanish newspaper El Mundo, stated that the departure of CR7 was mainly due to the fact that the player does not feel sufficiently respected by the Madrid club.
According to the publication, it all started when Cristiano Ronaldo was accused of tax fraud by the Spanish Treasury. At that point he was annoyed with Real president Florentino Perez, who denied help in the case, and was dissatisfied with his advisers, who did not give him the necessary support.
Then, at the end of the 2016/17 season, the club offered a contract renewal proposal that did not please Ronaldo. In the view of the attacker, the values were insufficient, mainly because they were inferior to the numbers received by Messi and Neymar, both of Barcelona at the time. From there, Cristiano started to think seriously about leaving the club, and his relationship with Florentino Pérez got sore.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored an amazing goal, a bicycle kick that elicited applause from the bianconera fans. The episode influenced the attacker emotionally, who later did not hesitate to accept the proposal offered by the Italian team.
