Real Madrid squad not affected by the absence of Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo Juventus Real Madrid transfer

Speaking on Thursday, after beating Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah to win the 2017-18 UEFA Player of the Year award, Modric said that he is "not happy, extremely happy" at Real Madrid.

A former player, widely recognised as one of the greatest French footballers of all time, has spoken of his confusion regarding Cristiano Ronaldo's move from Real Madrid to Juventus.

The 32-year-old helped Real Madrid win the Champions League for a third season running and then led Croatia to the World Cup final.

"Jorge Mendes, Ronaldo's agent, went a step further, calling the vote "ridiculous" and shameful".

The awards were presented at this season's Champions League group-stage draw in Monaco earlier today.

"This is not the victor, he's (Modric) the best player in the world in his position", said Mendes.

Games kick off on September 18, and two teams from each group advance to the Round of 16 in February.

'I think he [Cristiano] likes to come.

But it seems Coca-Cola swung in with an offer that was much more lucrative for Whitbread: the deal is worth £3.9 billion. Proceeds of the sale will be used to pay down debt and boost the pension fund.

Giorgio Marchetti, UEFA's deputy secretary general, said of the stadium issue: "In principle the regulations state that you have to play in a single stadium, but we will have to see".

If Mendes was this mad, we're sure that Ronaldo himself was absolutely furious.

Group H: Juventus, Manchester United, Valencia, Young Boys.

Their first-place finish in the Premier League meant a top-seed draw for this season's Champions League group stage.

United have won their last three games against Juventus - a famous semifinal triuph in 1999 and a pair of clashes in the 2002-03 season.

He fended off competition from former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, now with Italian giants Juventus.

A very hard group with one of the biggest candidates to reach the final [in Juventus] and a team who made an incredible investment on top of a fantastic team they had, so a big, big candidate. "We want to be stronger in Europe and we want to have the opportunity to fight for this Champions League".
