Ronaldo is about to reach the scoring milestone that Juventus coach predicted

Cristiano Ronaldo is on his way towards the scoring milestone that Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri predicted last August.

When entering the new season in August last year, coach Maurizio Sarri evaluated that Cristiano Ronaldo could achieve the number of goals he expected.

“I want him to score more than 40 goals this season,” Sarri said. After that, except for a rare number of turns of the squad, he always gave Ronaldo the opportunity to play for him to find a goal. 

Even when Juventus won the championship, based on the agreement between the two, CR7 still went to Cagliari to seek more goals for the Serie A top scorer and the European Golden Boot.

Despite the defeat against Ciro Immobile, now Ronaldo still has goals to look forward to, those are the goals in the Champions League.

The Portuguese star is currently missing 5 goals to reach 40 goals in the season. It seemed not an impossible task to perform when the Champions League was an arena in which he was very charming.

So far, Ronaldo is the king to score in the knockout stages of the European Cup with 65 goals compared to 41 for Messi.

This season, Ronaldo has scored fewer goals in the Champions League than Paulo Dybala (2 vs. 3), but the challenge with Lyon in the second leg of the eighth round will give him the opportunity to improve his performance. Not forgetting that, when Juventus reversed the situation against Atletico Madrid, Ronaldo scored a hat-trick. It is a reminder that the waiting and belief of Juventus fans can completely be deservedly responded by CR7

Is Ronaldo or Messi’s yacht more expensive?

Ronaldo and Messi both choose to vacation on luxury yachts, but which star’s yacht is more expensive?

In today’s hot summer days, both Ronaldo and Messi choose to resort on the sea. Messi recently relaxed with his family in Ibiza (Mallorca), while Ronaldo and his family were resting in the Mediterranean sea.

For the most comfortable and private relaxing moments, both stars choose luxury yachts.

According to Italian media, it is not clear whether Ronaldo rented or bought this 5 million-euro yacht. Azimut Grande 27 is designed as a miniature 5-star hotel on the sea, with a length of 27m and can run at a maximum speed of 28 knots, about 52 km / h.

Azimut Grande 27 is 3 stories high with 4 double cabins, 2 cabins for crew members and 7 bathrooms in different positions. In addition, all windows on the yacht are fitted with tempered glass so that visitors can watch the sea in any position.

This yacht is a bit shorter than Ronaldo’s yacht, only about 26m, but can still reach a maximum speed of 28 knots/hour.

More importantly, the Maiora 24S Lex is considered to have more utilities than the Azimut Grande 27. Messi’s yacht has 4 cabins that can accommodate 10 guests, including 1 Presidential cabin, 1 VIP cabin and 2 regular cabins. In particular, the Presidential cabin and VIP cabin have a double bed, private bathroom, TV and desk with high speed wifi connection.

In addition, Maiora 24S Lex also has a solarium, a cabin for 4 crew members, a wine cellar, a dining room and a storage of lots of underwater toys.

After spending a break, both Ronaldo and Messi will return to training to prepare for the return leg in the 1/8 Champions League round that takes place next week.

Ronaldo was almost MU sold to Barca like?

Cristiano Ronaldo was almost sold by Barca’s former team to Barca in 2009, not Real Madrid.

Cristiano Ronaldo has spent 9 successful seasons at Real Madrid. He won 2 La Liga titles and 4 C1 Cup championships and countless other individual and collective titles in the Spanish team. In addition, Ronaldo also became the greatest striker in Real Madrid history with 451 goals.

However, history could have been very different if MU decided to sell Ronaldo to Barca in 2009, not Real Madrid. This shocking information has just been revealed by former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon.

However, the plans of Real Madrid and Ronaldo were almost destroyed by Sir Alex Ferguson. Former president Ramon Calderon revealed: “In fact, coach Alex Ferguson did not want Ronaldo to leave because he really did not like Real Madrid.”

“We are a big opponent of MU and have won everything that he wants. Although MU has many titles, Real Madrid has won even more. Perhaps that is why coach Alex Ferguson offered to sell Ronaldo to Barca.

In fact, Barca also approached MU in 2009 to ask to buy Ronaldo, while Calderon replaced as Real Madrid president Vicente Boluda wanted to cancel his commitment with Ronaldo. Boluda even worked with stork Jorge Mendes to agree to cancel the deal that Real Madrid will sign with Ronaldo in the summer of 2009.

“Barca of course was delighted with the opportunity, but Ronaldo was always clear about the commitment he signed with me to join Real Madrid and he didn’t want to change this, even though the violating party committed to compensating 30 million euro”.

The sudden interruption of Barca made many senior members of Real Madrid’s management fear that they would not be able to win any title in the next 10 years when facing Barca with both Messi and Ronaldo. Therefore, CEO Jose Angel Sanchez asked President Boluda to talk with former President Florentino Perez to find a solution.

Under the arrangement of Perez, Real Madrid continues to carry out the Ronaldo deal with a record transfer fee. This is a landmark decision to help Real Madrid reap countless titles in the next 9 seasons with the Portuguese star.
