On July 10, 2016, he added another emotional victory to his collection, leading Portugal to the European Championship final against France as his national team's captain.
Although he was sidelined after suffering a knee injury 25 minutes into the match, Portugal went on to win the championship title 1-0, their first international trophy.
In 2009, Real Madrid paid a record 1 million for his services.
He made such an impression that a number of United players asked their manager to try and sign the young player.
Spanish glamour magazine Corazon says that the footballer and stunning model Desire Cordero, 23, have been an item for around a month.
They are said to have hooked up after giving each other likes on social media photos before starting to swap private messages.
So in 2009, when Spanish soccer club Real Madrid agreed to pay United a record 1 million for the chance to sign him, nobody was all that surprised to see Ronaldo leave United."I know that they are going to demand a lot of me to be successful at the club and I know that I'm going to have much more pressure than at Manchester United because I was there for many years," Ronaldo told reporters.
"But it means a new challenge and is going to help me be the best footballer."Following his FIFA World Player of the year award, Ronaldo went on to compile an impressive list of individual honors and team trophies.
