Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro GOIH ComM is a Portuguese professional footballer who has made a name for himself in the world of football. Born on February 5, 1985 in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal, Ronaldo has been a force to be reckoned with since his debut in 2002. He has represented the U15, U17, U20, U21 and U23 national teams, accumulating 34 international youth matches and scoring 18 goals overall. After passing through the youth and under-21 ranks, Ronaldo had made his first appearance for Portugal's entire national team against Kazakhstan in August 2003 (four days after his debut for United).In 2003, Ronaldo signed with English powerhouse Manchester United at the age of 18. He quickly made an impact on the team, winning the FA Cup in his first season and scoring 101 goals for the club in 134 matches in the country. After a successful season with Manchester United, Ronaldo moved to Juventus in 2018. During his time with Juventus, he continued to play in a variety of different attacking roles under manager Massimiliano Allegri.
Giorgio Ricci, director of revenue for Juventus, told the Times earlier this year that the partnership with his brand was so strong that it was difficult to discern how much of Juventus' growing pre-pandemic revenue was due to its Serie A dominance and how much had been reduced simply to having Ronaldo on the team. A 3-1 victory over Burnley last time away, during which Ronaldo scored his eighth Premier League goal of the campaign, served to raise a new optimism. However, Manchester United now has a real fight on their hands to finish in the top four. On Thursday, United staff, their players and many of their former employees were clear that there was a genuine prospect that Ronaldo could sign for Manchester City, his rival team that the player himself had not declared once, but twice that he would “never represent. Cristiano Ronaldo is now widely regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time. His remarkable achievements on the field have been matched by his ability to expand his club's brand off it.
His presence on any team is sure to bring success and recognition. He is currently playing for Manchester United and captains the Portuguese national team. Ronaldo is now too big for the game or at least for the vast majority. His name alone is enough to bring success and recognition to any team he plays for. He is an undeniable football phenomenon and will continue to be one for years to come.
