Cristiano Ronaldo has reflected on when he won his first league title with Manchester United in 2007. His motivation has always been trophies and his big dreams motivated him to take the new challenge of leaving Old Trafford for Real Madrid.

When I became a Manchester player, it was a moment of maximum pride for me. But I think it was more for my family. At the beginning, winning trophies was very exciting for me. I remember when I won my first Champions with Manchester, the emotions surpassed me. Same with the first Golden Ball. But my dreams were getting bigger.

I guess that’s how dreams work, right? I had always admired Madrid and wanted a new challenge. I wanted to win trophies with Madrid, break all the records and become a legend of the club.
