Figo: Ronaldo Is Replaceable At Real
Luis Figo: Cristiano Ronaldo Is Replaceable At Real Madrid
Former FC Barcelona and Real Madrid star Luis Figo has insisted that Cristiano Ronaldo, like any other player, is not bigger than Los Blancos.
Ronaldo has been heavily linked with an exit from Real over the past few days, with reports suggesting a return to Manchester United could be on the cards.
Figo, who spent five years at the Santiago Bernabeu, believes nobody is greater than the team, but was quick to add that he expects Ronaldo to remain in Madrid.
"I hold the opinion that nobody is indispensable, not just Cristiano Ronaldo," he told Gol.
"Clubs can't depend on anybody. The history of these clubs is above everyone, even the president or whoever.
"A lot of things would have to happen for him to leave.
"It is a personal decision and if a person really wants something to happen then it will end up happening, but I see it as unlikely."
Ronaldo scored 42 goals in 46 games for Real last season, helping his side win the UEFA Champions League and La Liga titles.
