With Cristiano Ronaldo finally finding his footing among the goals, Real Madrid’s star midfielder has made a rather big request from Los Blancos to extend Ronaldo’s stay at Santiago Bernabeu.
The 33-year-old has struggled this season, especially in the La Liga with goals coming sparingly but despite that Cristiano Ronaldo has been one of Real Madrid’s best players.
The Portugal international has turned a corner and it looks like his age may finally be catching up to him but that hasn’t stopped him, at least in the Champions League.
With Real Madrid beating PSG to move on to the next stage in their Champions League defense, both fans and critics expected the Parisians to come out on top thanks to their incredible line-up with the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Marco Veratti, Edision Cavani among others.
However, thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo scoring three goals over the course of two legs, Los Blancos lived to fight another day.
But when Ronaldo opened the scoring at the Parc de Princes, he equaled yet another record with the chance to break it in the next leg. The 33-year-old equaled former Manchester United team-mate Rudd van Nistelrooy’s record of scoring in nine consecutive Champions League games, with a chance to make it 10 in the quarter-finals.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has now scored 22 goals in his last 13 Champions League appearances, which has led teammate Casemiro to lavish him with praise. “As for Cristiano, we’re talking about the best player in the world,” Casemiro said after the game. “I want to continue to enjoy seeing him score goals and put in the performances he does, because he’s the best player in the world.”
“We always want to do our best and tonight we’ve shown that when we perform like that, we’re unbeatable,” Casemiro further added. “There are days when things don’t go your way and you can’t always win, but we’re a strong side, both at home and on the road.”
With Cristiano Ronaldo being linked with moves to Manchester United, PSG, and even his former club Sporting Lisbon, this season could be the last the Portuguese international spends at the Bernabeu. But if he keeps playing at a level only he and Lionel Messi know about, then maybe things could be different come next season,but time is certainly not on his side.
