The summer transfer window has come to an end, and the main transfer of the season is the departure of the legendary player, Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese is leaving the Royal Club to join Juventus, and his departure will affect the team in the long run.
The transfer of Cristiano was a real surprise, because the Portuguese had been considered one of the best players of the Old World. He was the best in the world in the previous season, and he was also the top scorer of the team. However, the player was not the most popular in the team, and this was the main reason for his departure.
In the summer, Real Madrid bought the young player, Dani Carvajal, who is a perfect replacement for the Portuguese. However the main problem of the club is the lack of motivation in the players. The main star of the squad, Ronaldo, is not in the best shape, and it is obvious that he will not be able to continue playing in the field for a long time.
The departure of Cristian is not the only transfer that happened in the summer. The following transfers were also noteworthy:
1. €80 million transfer of Gareth Bale from Real Madrid to Tottenham;
2. €60 million transfer from Real to Juventus;
3. $50 million transfer to Manchester United from Real;
4. transfer of James Rodriguez from Barcelona to Manchester City.
All of these transfers were made to strengthen the team and give it a new impetus.
Will Ronaldo leave Real Madrid?
The main problem that the team faces is the loss of motivation of the star player. The player is not able to play for the team for a very long time, and there is a real lack of desire in the player.
It is clear that the player will not stay at the Royal club for a longer time, but the team will not have a new star player for a while. The team has a number of good players, but they are not able at the moment to compete with the main stars of the world.
Real Madrid is one of those teams, and they are the main favorites of the Champions League. The Royal club has a long bench, and if they have to play with a new player, then they will have to make a number substitutions.
However, the team is not very motivated, and many players are not in a good shape. This is another reason for the departure Cristiano.
What will happen to the team now?
Real has a good squad, but many of the players are still young, and some of them have not yet reached their peak. The club has already started to lose points in the domestic arena, and now it is very difficult to compete against the main clubs of the EPL.
If Real Madrid is not considered a favorite of the tournament, then the team can be considered as a real outsider of the championship. The players have to do their best to get out of the group stage, and then they can focus on the Champions Cup.

Who will be the main contenders for the title?
There are a lot of teams that can compete with Real Madrid in the current season. The list of contenders includes:
* Juventus; and
* Manchester City
The first three teams are considered the main rivals of the Royal team, but it is clear now that they will not compete for the gold medals. The last team is a bit more difficult to evaluate, because it is not clear if the team has the right to play in the Champions league.
At the moment, the main contender for the victory in the tournament is the team of the Spanish Royal Club, Barcelona. The Catalans are the most successful club in the history of the sport, and their success is due to the following factors:
· high level of the football;
· high level players;
• a good selection of players; and,
· good teamwork.
Barcelona has a great bench, which allows the coach to rotate the players during the matches. The coach always has a choice of players for each match, and all of them are able to contribute to the victory of the Catalan team.
Moreover, the players of Barcelona are very motivated and are able not only to score goals, but also to get the necessary points. This motivation is the main advantage of the Catalans over other teams.
Juventus is another contender for gold medals, and its main rival is the Royal one. The Turin team has already won the Champions trophy, and in the future it is expected to repeat the victory.
Manchester City is a team that is not as strong as the other teams, but its players are able and motivated to win the championship, too.
How to follow the results of the matches?
It will be very difficult for Real Madrid and Barcelona to win gold medals in the next season, because they have a long list of rivals. However it is possible to follow their results on the sports statistics website.
