Another player who's body transformation was much talked about is Ronaldo. The Juventus man is often praised for his physical ability at the age of 34.

Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale is another underwent major bodily changes during his final few months at his former club Tottenham Hotspur and the early stages of his time in Spain, and is still regarded as one of the world's fastest footballers when he is fit.
