Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the greatest player in the history of Real Madrid. If not, he is quite certainly high on that illustrious list. It has been more than half-a-decade since he left the club though, to join Juventus, almost out of the blue. Since then, his career has been on somewhat of a downward trajectory.
Ronaldo did find individual success at Juventus. But the whole idea of the move was for him to help them get past the final hurdle and win the Champions League, which they were not successful in doing. Instead, the Italian club took several steps back both domestically and in Europe over the Portuguese superstar's three seasons in Turin.
Ronaldo would then make a blockbuster return to Manchester United. The club seemed to be moving in the right direction under the management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the five-time Ballon d'Or winner was seen as the final piece of the puzzle, who would guide them back to the glory days.
Reality proved to be different. Manchester United's form dipped despite Ronaldo having a decent season. And his time at Old Trafford would end under a dark cloud, following a controversial interview in late 2022. After that, the Portuguese icon ended up leaving European football and joined Al-Nassr, a move that had seemed not too long ago.

Ronaldo has been doing well individually at Al-Nassr as well. But they are struggling to put up a genuine challenge for the league title.
Casemiro's own time at Manchester United has been up and down. He had earned a lot of plaudits last season but has been heavily criticised this time around, as Manchester United are struggling once again.
Casemiro himself has struggled for both form and fitness, and is now being linked with a move away from Manchester United. Could he end up reuniting with Ronaldo at Al-Nassr? Time shall tell.
