The former Manchester United winger has a history of scoring nothing less than 50 goals a season and has kept the momentum since his arrival at Los Blancos. Out of his seven seasons well spent at Real Madrid, CR7 has missed the target only once.

Ronaldo has well compensated for the 2009 record transfer fee ( €94m ) paid for his services at the Santiago Bernabue.
Ramos says life at Real Madrid can’t be imagines with the forward.
“No-one can argue the fact that [Cristiano] is a unique player who leads the team forward and has been doing it for years.
“It’s hard to imagine Real Madrid without Cristiano. We’re delighted to have him because he guarantees at least 50 goals every season.
“It’s very difficult to maintain his level for so many years, and he’s done that.
“As a club, we’ve had these guarantees for the time he’s been here, and that’s a luxury.”

Sergio Ramos also talked about Real Madrid’s coach, Zinedine Zidane. In his words: “I only have positive words to describe Zidane since his arrival, not only for what he did, what he represents and the time we spent together as teammates, but also as a Coach,” he told UEFA.com.
“Despite having little time [at the helm], he’s led the team through an important period, when we could still win the League and the Champions League.
“He’s very involved and the great player he was, he’s also shown that as a Coach.”

“We try to implement the ideas he had as a player. We’ve found an excellent balance in our game and he’s bringing out the best of each player.
“Our team spirit is excellent, and reaching the final is a reward for the hard work and commitment we’ve shown after a tough season.”
