- Madrid on a decline :
In the last few years, Madrid have struggled to dominate and win trophies in spite of Ronaldo’s spectacular form. Their last most recognizable trophy was the La Decima and ever since Carlo Ancelotti’s sacking, Madrid have struggled to look better than they were before. Rafa is trying his best to do well but he has own issues in settling and controlling the atmosphere of the dressing room. If Ronaldo is to challenge for the Ballon d’Or he could not afford this decline and may look to join elsewhere to improve his chances.
