It is been a day or two as the greatest of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo signed Juventus as he left his former club Real Madrid for a €100 million. However, as the numbers are increasing day by day, it is very likely that Ronaldo will not be at the top of the list of the combined transfer fee.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer fee might not set yet another record for him but is sure that he increased his worth just with his age.
This is not the first time as the barrier of €100 million is broken as Gareth Bale, Neymar, Paul Pogba, Ousmane Dembele, and Philippe Coutinho Kylian Mbappe have all reached the same.
However, when it comes to cumulative transfer fees of all time, Ronaldo is the second spot just after Neymar, as the last transfer from Barcelona to PSG kept Neymar in the top spot.
Here is the list of top 10 footballers in accordance with their all-time cumulative transfer fee.
|1||Neymar||Santos, Barcelona, PSG||€308.2m|
|2||Cristiano Ronaldo||Sporting, Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus||€221m|
|3||Kylian Mbappe||Monaco, PSG||€180m|
|4||Philippe Coutinho||Liverpool, Barcelona, Vasco da Gama, Inter,||€174m|
|5||Angel Di Maria||Rosario Central, Benfica, Real Madrid, Manchester United, PSG||€169.2m|
|6||Ousmane Dembele||Rennes, Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona||€160m|
|7||Zlatan Ibrahimovic||Malmo, Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona, AC Milan, PSG, Manchester United||€159.5m|
|8||Romelu Lukaku||Manchester United, Anderlecht, Chelsea, West Brom, Everton||€140.2m|
|9||James Rodriguez||Envigado, Banfield, Porto, Monaco, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich||€140.1m|
|10||Gonzalo Higuain||River Plate, Real Madrid, Napoli, Juventus||€140m|
*The list above only includes the net transfer fees, as it excludes all the add-ons and incentives.
As the transfer fees are increasing every day, it is pretty sure that the GOAT certainly not keep his spot after all the transfers this year. The reason behind the same is France winger Mbappe is only €40m (approx) behind and he has all the potential to play for Real this season. Moreover, the rumors are that Real Madrid will aim for this youngster as a replacement for Ronaldo.
Though the Brazilian left winger Counthino is not far behind from Mbappe, he will most likely to play for his current Club Barcelona for this session.
In a word, it can be said Neymar will most probably top this list after all the transfers for the upcoming season, Ronaldo’s place is certainly not secure.
FIFA announces The Best FIFA Football Awards, Messi bags Best Men’s Player of the Year
The Best FIFA Football Awards 2019 took place on 23 September 2019 at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Italy. Barcelona’s Lionel Messi won the Best Player Award in men’s category as he left behind Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo and Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk who failed to win the top prize.
Best FIFA Football Awards,
It is also the sixth title for Messi at these awards as he previously won this award in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015.
Messi performed brilliantly this year for which he was duly rewarded at this ceremony. His nearest competitor for this award was van Dijk and it was also surprising to some fans as well that Messi was chosen over him. The Argentinian helped Barcelona win La Liga and reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.
One of the biggest competitors for Lionel Messi has always been Cristiano Ronaldo but this time it was not the case. One of the biggest reasons behind it can be his transfer to Juventus from Real Madrid. He was also not even present at the award ceremony and his absence became one of the talking points of this event as well.
Here is the complete list of all the award winners of The Best FIFA Football Award:
The Best FIFA Men’s Player: Lionel Messi (Barcelona)
The Best FIFA Women’s Player: Megan Rapinoe (Reign FC)
The Best FIFA Men’s Coach: Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool)
The Best FIFA Women’s Coach: Jill Ellis (USWNT)
The Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper: Alisson (Liverpool)
The Best FIFA Women’s Goalkeeper: Sari van Veenendaal (Arsenal / Atlético Madrid)
FIFA Puskas Award: Daniel Zsori (Debrecen FC vs Ferencvaros TC)
Apart from awarding the best performers, there was also a team formed of 11 players that consisted of the performers. Here is the Fifa Fifpro Men’s Team of the Year:
Goalkeeper- Alisson (Liverpool/Brazil)
Defenders- Matthijs de Ligt (Ajax and Juventus/Netherlands), Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid/Spain), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool/Netherlands), Marcelo (Real Madrid/Brazil).
Midfielders- Luka Modric (Real Madrid/Croatia), Frenkie de Jong (Ajax and Barcelona/Netherlands), Eden Hazard (Chelsea and Real Madrid/Belgium)
Forwards- Kylian Mbappe (Paris St-Germain/France), Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus/Portugal), Lionel Messi (Barcelona/Argentina)
Ballon d’Or 2019: Three Probable Players who can lift the Award
The Ballon d’Or is believed to be the greatest individual award in football which is entitled to the greatest player every year and it remains as a dream for many great players but sometimes they are unable to win the silverware. From the past few years, it was just the duopoly of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi who were constantly winning this until last year where Croatian skipper Luka Modric broke it to claim the title.
Just like every year, it remains really difficult to select the ultimate winner of this award as there are numerous wonderful performances witnessed so far. There are names who can easily beat the three players mentioned above to take the title home as apart from Messi, the other two names are missing from the list of top three contenders at this point of time.
Let’s look at all the three players who are there in this list of contenders with the maximum chances of this prestigious award.
#3 Lionel Messi (Argentina, Barcelona FC)
As expected, the number one player to feature in this list has to be Argentinian striker Lionel Messi but his name at the third spot shows that there have been performances in this year which are even better than his.
Messi ended his La Liga campaign with a total of 36 goals which helped him win his third consecutive ‘Golden Shoe’ title for which he won the Pichichi Award. These statistics also helped his team win their eighth overall title in this League. This puts him ahead of many other footballers in the list of contenders who can win the Ballon d’Or.
#2 Kylian Mbappe (France, Paris Saint-Germain)
This year has been one of the best years in the career of the French forward as he scored 33 goals in the La Liga which was just Lionel Messi. Apart from this, Mbappe has scored a total of 39 goals and 17 assists which puts him way ahead amongst the other footballers.
Apart from the number of goals, the 20-year old also helped his team in winning the Ligue 1 title and that too in the absence of one of their biggest players Neymar. The only thing that could not take place for Mbappe was winning the French League title as his team lost in the ultimate match. But this does not makes us shy away from the fact that he has played wonderful football and has a great chance of winning the award.
#1 Virgil van Dijk (Netherlands, Liverpool)
The player who has the maximum number of chances of winning the Ballon d’Or has to be no one but Virgil van Dijk from the Liverpool FC. The Dutch player is currently one of the most utility defenders in the world during the current scenario.
This can easily be witnessed as Liverpool has conceded only 22 goals in the current Premier League season and have also qualified for the finals. If his side manages to pull off the ultimate game, his chances of winning the Ballon d’Or will almost get assured.

Top 20 Cristiano Ronaldo Goals That Shocked The World
Cristiano Ronaldo to join Juventus after 9 years of glorious football in Real Madrid
Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro started his career in 2003 with one of the most prominent clubs of all time Manchester United. While playing as a left winger for the team, he developed immense skills and eventually became the greatest of all time.
However, the GOAT started breaking records and making some new ones since 2010, a year after he joined the Spanish giants Real Madrid. Since 2009, Ronaldo has played 438 games for Real Madrid and scored about 451 goals which are the highest among the Real’s goal scorers.
Not only those, Ronaldo’s performances gifted the Spanish club with 11 major trophies which of course includes 4 UEFA Champion league titles.
Real Madrid Fans got a shocker in the middle of the current World cup campaign when Juventus confirmed about Cristiano Ronaldo playing for the Seria A side.
The 33 years old Portuguese has officially signed a contract of 4 years which will generate £500,000 a week for Ronaldo.
Another interesting thing about this transfer is really astonishing as the Juventus manager said in a press meeting that Juventus never approached him and Ronaldo was the one who was looking to play for this Italian club.
Ronaldo, at the very beginning of his career, did get an offer from Juventus, however, Manchester United former manager, Alex Ferguson noticed Ronaldo playing and immediately signed the rising star.
While leaving his own club Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo wrote a letter to the Real Fans saying, “Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you: thank you to the club, the president, the directors, my colleagues, all the staff, doctors, physios and incredible people that make everything work.’’
He finished his letter by adding,” thank you for letting me play for 9 best years of life. I will never forget the very first time I stepped on to Bernabeu. Hala Madrid!!
Not only this, the social media went crazy after the confirmation of the news and there were a few Real stars who tweeted with gratitude for Cristiano Ronaldo.
In a word, one thing which is confirmed as after this transfer, Seria A will be having some new spectators as the greatest of all time is going to play for the same.
‘No-one Will Be Compared With Me’:Cristiano Ronaldo Boasts
Ronaldo has made a huge statement about himself. Cristiano Ronaldo boasts that no one could ever be compared with him. He stated this before the beginning of Real Madrid’s La Liga match against Girona. In the match against Girona, he scored 4 Goals to help Real Madrid to get a win with a margin of 6-3. It was Cristiano Ronaldo’s 50th Career Hat-Trick. This player is proving his quality in every match.
Also, Ronaldo boasts that his ethics, his dedication, his work rate and his love for football cannot be matched by anyone till date. Cristiano Ronaldo had proved himself in two different Leagues in World football. The quality of football in these two Leagues is certainly better than any other league in the World. Cristiano Ronaldo had begun his career at Manchester United. He was nurtured well under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Cristiano Ronaldo had adapted himself to the physicality of the Premier League. He was one of the best young footballers in the World at that time. After that, he joined Real Madrid to prove himself in the La Liga. He adapted himself to the style of the Spanish football too. He had won the Ballon d’Or award five times in his career. There was one problem Ronaldo had to face throughout his career.
He was always compared with the Argentine star footballer Lionel Messi. The World always divided into two parts when there is the comparison between Messi and Ronaldo. Probably that is the reason we see that this ever-arrogant soccer legend, Ronaldo boasts of his skills.
The playing style of these two footballers is completely different. Cristiano Ronaldo was a left wing forward at the beginning of his career. In this phase of his career, he is preferring to play as a center forward. On the other hand, Lionel Messi is an attacking midfielder.
Messi is a playmaker and Ronaldo is a prolific goalscorer. So, there should not be any comparison between them. But, still there always the comparison between them. Cristiano Ronaldo made it clear with the statement that he could not be compared with anyone. Lionel Messi is certainly more talented than Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of football skills. But, Ronaldo has developed himself with constant hard work and dedication. One thing we can say surely that his love and passion for football is a thing to watch out for every young aspiring footballer.
