Some people might hate me for saying it, but this current Real Madrid is not the same without Cristiano Ronaldo.
Yes, it's the greatest club in the world, but certainly not as great as it was with Ronaldo.
You can bring Hazard or Harry Kane or Mbappe or Neymar or Salah or even the legend Messi but they certainly won't be successful at this Real Madrid.
Cause this Real Madrid team has in recent years been built around Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo was not only the scoring factor who used to score 50 goals a season but he was also the player who understands the main XI of RM.
Ronaldo used to know where Bale or Benzema or Modric or Kroos or Marcelo would pass / cross the ball, without seeing them,
No one else can do that.
There was a chemistry between them for a long 9 years, no one else could have that.
This Real Madrid is completely dependent on Ronaldo, so when Ronaldo left they all collapsed, you can see it from their performance last season.
Certainly you can bring the world's best players but they won't do the same Ronaldo used to do for you.
RM will have to adapt a whole new playstyle, with new players for success.
It will take at least 3-4 years for RM to get over Ronaldo ..
And the saddest thing is that even after 3-4 years it still won't be possible to replace him.
Cause he is irreplaceable.
