Madrid Wins Back-To-Back Titles, £1.5m Bonus for Each Player


Cristiano Ronaldo just seems to get better and better.

As people waited in Cardiff on Saturday night for Zinedine Zidane to arrive at the post-match press conference to explain how easy it is to win European Cups, Florentino Perez was giving a radio interview anticipating another Champions League victory.

Speculation is rife that Bale's time in Madrid could be nearing an end but he's determined to stay in Spain and win more trophies.

Ron now has 105 Champions League goals and is the star man in a side that has now won three out of the last four tournaments to make it a dozen wins in total. Juve on the other hand have only a 25% success rate as they won 2 out of the 8 UCL finals they appeared in (6 losses).

Ronaldo isn't immune to criticism and when asked about how certain fans in the Bernabeu have reacted to him this season, he simply said that the "numbers don't lie".

Putin denies having compromising information on Trump
In August 2016, Flynn said that he did not ask to sit next to Putin and wasn't concerned about how it looked with him sitting next to the Russian leader.

THE INDIVIDUAL STATS - Gonzalo Higuain has scored 5 goals so far in this year's UCL as this is his best season in career.

Ronaldo, 32, earlier became the only player alongside Alfredo Di Stefano to score in three different European Cup/Champions League finals. [Gianluigi] Buffon and (Andrea) Barzagli will still be with us next year and they still have a lot to give us. "We can't live off the past, but that badge imposes upon you and we know our obligations", veteran player Sergio Ramos said. We're working hard. We worked hard all season, thinking we could achieve things because in the long run everyone's been very important. In the run-up to the final, it sounded like Juventus were favourites and were playing a team who'd reached the final by chance.

Juventus, which lost the 2015 final to Real Madrid's archrival Barcelona, scored with Mario Mandzukic.

Cristiano Ronaldo was able to look back on "an awesome season - again" having helped Real Madrid to back-to-back UEFA Champions League titles and been voted man of the match after becoming the first player to score in three finals. "I played here for many years and this club is in my heart".

Real Madrid's Gareth bale raises the trophy at the end of the Champions League soccer final between Juventus and Real Madrid at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, Saturday, June 3, 2017. One player nearly certainly to leave is James Rodriguez, who arrived amid high expectations after the 2014 World Cup but didn't get a lot of playing time under Zidane. Juve played well, created opportunities but in the second half we were impressive. It's why you're a footballer and it's the reason I came here.
