The Portuguese talisman shocked the world in 2018 when he announced he would be leaving [/sport/teampages/real-madrid.html Real Madrid] after nine trophy-laden years - becoming arguably the club's best ever player in that time.
With the forward on the market, AC Milan were reportedly close to signing him but the club's Chinese owner Li Yonghong at the time had to pull out of the deal over financial issues, leading to Ronaldo joining Juventus in a deal worth £100million instead.

While Mirabelli admits that the financial issue was the deciding factor in the move collapsing, he is adamant that Ronaldo would be wearing the famous black and red stripes right now if different owners were in charge.
Speaking to TV channel Sportitalia, he said: 'It was something we talked about with Jorge Mendes.
'We knew there could be problems with Real and Ronaldo. We did everything, but then the Chinese owners blocked the deal because it was not sustainable.
'With the current owners CR7 would have been a Milan player.'

AC Milan were taken over by American hedge fund Elliott Management that summer, ending Li's short one-year spell at the club.
Mirabelli also revealed that the club were looking to appoint Antonio Conte, before he joined rivals Inter Milan.
He added: 'I was proud to have made this choice [when appointing Gattuso] because of his professionalism, his seriousness and the love he and his staff put into their work.
'The Chinese owners did not agree because they thought from the outside it would look like a backward step, but I explained that for me Rino was the coach of the future. He has worked in Greece, Serie C and B and for me this is a positive.
'We listened to [Conte], we talked directly. It was a chat that didn't result in anything.'
