Ronaldo’s first yellow came after he put Madrid ahead with a roaring strike from just inside the box , beating Gerard Piqué and then Marc-André ter Stegen after Isco found him streaking up the wing.
Just as Lionel Messi did at the Bernabeu a year before, Ronaldo ripped off his shirt, sprinted to the sideline, and held it high for the Camp Nou fans to see.
A web of conspiracies, backroom pacts, and handshake agreements would send Cristiano to Ligue 1 in a deal that would send coveted Monaco 18-year-old Kylian Mbappé to Madrid and would net the defending Spanish and European champions a total value of €230 million—just ahead of the €222 million PSG paid for Neymar, once again making CR7 the most expensive transfer in world history.
Then, goes the theory, every person in front of her in Monaco’s line of succession dies, and without international investigation—who would want to upset European stability?—Ronaldo and his wife, as prince and princess, become the heads of state of Monaco.
