Former Barca Star: Real More Dangerous Without CR7

Real Madrid are more dangerous and united as a team since Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus, according to a former FC Barcelona star.
 
 
The Portuguese ended his eight-year stay with Los Blancos to join to the Bianconeri in a deal worth €112 million (R1.9 billion) during the off-season.
 
However, despite seeing their record goalscorer leave for pastures new, Real have had an impressive start to the season, while Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema have also found themselves among the goals in LaLiga, and former Barca star Dani Alves feels the UEFA Champions League holders are more of a threat now than they were with the Portugal captain in their ranks.
 
"I think that, contrary to what everybody thinks, Madrid is more of a team without Cristiano," the Brazilian told Marca.
 
"Now it's a bit more difficult than it was before – before it was complicated but focused a lot on Cristiano, and now it's a bit more dangerous, at least (in terms of) how I see football and my concept of this game.
 
"It's not going to be so easy to beat Madrid, they are more of a team now. It's obvious that Cristiano is a brutal loss for Madrid, but Madrid are Madrid."
 
 
Do you agree that Real are stronger without Ronaldo? Let us know in the comments section below.
