Real Madrid received 100 million euros from Juventus for the transfer of Cristiano in July 2018. In economic terms, the operation seemed very beneficial for Madrid at the time. However, the passage of time has shown that it was not so profitable. The White House have spent more than the triple to try to fill the gap left by the top scorer in the club's history and have failed to cover it.
In total, Madrid has disbursed 304 million in the purchase of footballers in order to alleviate the scoring deficit left by Cristiano's departure: Eden Hazard was the most expensive with 115 million euros, Luka Jovic the second one with 60 kilos, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes, the third one and the fourth with 45 million each, and complete the list Mariano Díaz with 22, and Brahim Díaz, the cheapest that cost 17 millions.
However, Madrid's biggest problem has not been spending triple what Cristiano entered, but those who arrived in his place have not been able to reach, among all, the goalscoring figures of the Portuguese star. In total, the six reinforcements for the Madrid forward in the last three years have scored 35 goals. Vinicius (13), Rodrygo (8), Mariano Díaz (6), Hazard (4), Jovic (2) and Brahim Díaz (2).
Cristiano, for his part, has not lowered his scoring performance at Juventus. The Portuguese star almost triples the number of his six "substitutes" in Madrid. Since signing for the Vecchia Signora, he has scored 95 goals in 122 games. This season he has already scored 30 goals in 33 games, an average of almost one goal per game. In the campaign of his debut in Italy, 2018-19, he scored 28 goals in 43 games, while last season he scored 37 goals in 46. His last exhibition was this Sunday, scoring a hat-trick in 32 minutes and silencing the criticism leveled at him after Juventus was eliminated in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
