With De Ligt possibly going to Bayern we’ll see if there’s truth in the rumours that Juve want Gabriel
The corrupt cash has gone. Todd is not even as wealthy as Stan. Can’t see why Bayern couldn’t outbid them. PL aside, Bayern are a big pull and I’m sure they can find the money. Will always be a bigger pull than Chelsea.Will Bayern have the money to outbid Chelsea? Do Bayern have someone that Juve might want in exchange?
Ok so you may have forgotten you said ronaldo killed the output of these goal machines. Not really true is it, and juve won quite a few trophies with ronaldo there.He does guarantee goals. At the expense of other players.
Year before Ronaldo joined juve:
Dybala - 22
Higuain - 16
Khedira - 9
Year Ronaldo joined juve:
Next top scorer - mandzukic - 9
Keane - 6
Dybala - 5
You compared benzema when you said look how many goals he is scoring since ronaldo left. He is scoring alot and nobody is denying that, but my point is benzema couldnt get a sniff because benzema is not as good as ronaldo. You then say benzema rightly took a backseat to ronaldo, what on earth is your point then. Ronaldo scored record levels of goals, the club scores less but the club wins more trophies. Thats not ruining output, that is called success.What are you talking about?
Who said any of those players mentioned were comparable to the level of Ronaldo? I’m talking about him stifling the output of the attacking players around him, which can clearly be seen by the statistics. This has got worse the older he’s gotten as his desire for his personal accolades far outweigh his desire to help his teammates achieve theirs. Countless examples of this can be seen with him getting annoyed by a teammate scoring instead of him.
In regards to benzema, with Ronaldo in the team he scored over league 20 goals just twice in the 9 years they played together. Since Ronaldo left, benzema scored 20+ every season. It’s well documented that benzema took a back seat for Ronaldo (rightly so given he’s one of the greatest of all time).
17/18 - 86 goals - no Ronaldo
18/19 - 70 goals - with Ronaldo
19/20 - 76 goals - with Ronaldo
20/21 - 73 no Ronaldo
21/22 - 57 with Ronaldo
Getting arguably the greatest goal scorer of all time, cost both of those clubs 16 league goals. But Ronaldo got his goals, so it must be the players around him that are crap.
