In Spain, Ronaldo took his career to new heights by writing his name into history books with match-winning performances and remarkable consistency.

The 34-year-old became Juventus' record buy in 2018, and has once again stated that he was in need of a new challenge as he felt he had achieved everything he could at Real.

"I don't like being in the comfort zone," he told Portuguese television channel TVI.

"At Real Madrid I was too comfortable, I had already won so much that each new title was just one more, and the routine always the same."

He did, however, admit that leaving the LaLiga giants was not an easy decision to make.

"Obviously leaving Real Madrid was difficult because I spent nine years, 60% of my career was there, so you feel it," he added.

"But I came to a different challenge and I'm very happy to be here (Juventus). I wanted a new challenge."

Ronaldo Drops Shock Retirement Hint?

Ronaldo scored 450 goals in 438 games for Los Blancos, winning 15 trophies along the way.
