When Cristiano Ronaldo complained over Juventus transfer valuation

by | Jan 27, 2022 20:15

When he was still at Juventus in 2020, Cristiano Ronaldo angrily complained to Transfermarkt about his market valuation and then blocked them on social media, but time proved CR7 wrong.

The story was revealed in an interview with The Athletic, explaining they were frankly surprised by the behaviour of the superstar.

The Instagram post evidently caught his attention in March 2020, as the then-Juventus player felt affronted at being considered only the fourth most valuable Serie A figure after Inter pair Christian Eriksen, Lautaro Martinez and his Juventus teammate Paulo Dybala.

Despite explaining to CR7 that he was by far the most valuable player aged 33 and older, Transfermarkt were sent a message on social media insisting there had been some mistake.

“It was £30-50 million difference (between Ronaldo and the next player on the list), and then he sent some smilies, and then he blocked us,” revealed Christian Schwartz.

History would prove Transfermarkt right, because when Cristiano Ronaldo did leave Juventus for Manchester United some 17 months later, he did it at a cost of just €15m plus up to €8m in performance-related bonuses.

That same summer, Romelu Lukaku – who had been valued in March 2020 at the exact same market figure as CR7 – moved from Inter to Chelsea for €115m.

    Cristina is very sensitive. After his grovelling pre-ballon d’or, Fifa had to create a special award for him just so he doesn’t feel left out.

    Wow Suzy – terrific article – not. Why write this tripe. Maybe just focus on what goes on in Serie A and Italian football without biases..

    I like these articles. Just confirms it’s all about him. Hope Italy send him to retirement in 2 months and show him the team concept will prevail.
