Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence is still keenly felt at Real Madrid, according to William Carvalho, who would not have sold him even for €200m.
Carvalho suggested that no amount of money would have lured him into selling the star forward to Juventus, had it been his call to make.
Asked if Madrid, languishing a relatively lowly fifth in LaLiga, were suffering without Ronaldo’s goals, Carvalho told Marca: “Of course, Cristiano is needed in any team in the world and in Real Madrid they notice a little bit, not much, the goals that Cristiano scored.
“But now he’s fine, he’s good in Juventus and he’ll score many goals there.
“It is difficult to know [why he left], I do not know what happened, but I know how Cristiano is, he has an ambition the size of the world, he wants to always do things well and show that he is the best.”
