With Real Madrid, the Portuguese spent almost ten years in Spain. In 2009, he transferred to them from Manchester United for a then-record sum of €94 million. He later contributed 131 assists and 450 goals throughout 438 games for Los Blancos in various competitions. Among other awards, he received four Ballons d'Or, four Champions League, and two La Liga championships.
The Portuguese is also Real Madrid's best scorer all-time, with Karim Benzema coming in second with 323 goals. That demonstrates the dominance Ronaldo had within the team. He frequently instilled dread in his opponents with his dribbling prowess, heading prowess, directness, and dangerous two-footedness.
Manolo Lama, a Spanish sportscaster, gave him the moniker "El Bicho" while commentating on a game because of this. It refers to a bug that may fear his adversaries, which fits the five-time Ballon d'Or winner well.
Despite moving from Madrid to Juventus in 2018, Ronaldo is still a feared goal scorer. With 815 goals in 1,121 games, the 37-year-old has surpassed the previous highest scorer in football history (club and nation).
Last season, he contributed several crucial goals for Manchester United, giving them much-needed victories in a disastrous campaign.
Now, "El Bicho" will aim to lead Portugal to the FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year and have a strong start to the next campaign.
