Cristiano Ronaldo is among the all-time greats in football. He has accomplished everything. He is turning 39 years old today. He has made history with clubs like Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus, and now Al Nassr. He is my favorite player from his time at Man U.

Though eight points short of the top four, United’s much-needed victory was made possible by Alejandro Garnacho’s brace in the second half. As a result, United is now in sixth position. Though everyone feared he couldn’t adjust to the new position, he is actually playing pretty well despite switching from left wing forward to right wing forward. With respect to pursuing their bid for the French star, Real Madrid is in a strong position. Having failed multiple times to sign him, I’m hoping this time the transaction will work.
