In all their quest for a replacement for Ronaldo, Real Madrid has failed to sign an adequate successor for Cristiano Ronaldo, they have struggled without their club-record goalscorer in 2018/19, and manager Zinedine Zidane has now insisted the Portuguese’ is irreplaceable.
Last summer after winning three Champions League title, Ronaldo made the move to Italian club Juventus in a deal worth €100 million (R1.58 billion), plus add-ons, ahead of this campaign.
And since his departure at the Bernabeu, Real Madrid chiefs have been looking for a good replacement for the ex-Manchester United star.
In Ronaldo’s absence, Karim Benzema has stepped up and is Real’s top goalscorer in 2018/19 so far, netting 26 goals across all competitions, which has earned special praise from his coach.
“Cristiano’s situation is one that we can’t change, he’s gone. We can sign any player and whoever comes in won’t do all that Cristiano did.
“That’s the way things go in life, he did some great things at this club and we were delighted with him. “He’s now in another chapter in his career and I’m tired of repeating myself because we’re not going to win anything at the end of this season but we are going to try and finish strongly,” Zidane explained according to Daily Star UK.
