It's almost impossible to imagine a football season without being dazzled and amazed by Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese has been one of the biggest stars in the world for the last 14 years, and that has led him to play for some of the biggest clubs in world football, including Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus. However, every season is different for Ronaldo, as he has managed to achieve more in certain seasons. Like CS: GO gambling, every season starts with fresh for Ronaldo, and he must aim for the highest standards from the opening game. Some seasons have been more successful than others, and the majority of those have been with Ronaldo producing some of his very best football. But, what season was the best for the Portuguese superstar?
Cristiano Ronaldo - His best season for Manchester United:
Manchester United 2007-08
It's almost impossible to believe that Cristiano Ronaldo almost left Manchester United in the summer of 2006 following the World Cup. If he would have then his breakthrough season in 2007-08 may not have happened, and the footballing landscape could have been completely different. Sir Alex Ferguson was able to repair the bond between Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney following that World Cup, and they led the Red Devils to the Premier League title in 2006-07. However, the 2007-08 campaign was when we saw the very best version of the Portuguese in the Premier League.
He broke a number of records for United in the season, which included beating the record of 32-goals from George Best. In total, he scored 42 goals in all competitions, with 31 of those coming in 34 league games. That helped United grabbing a second consecutive league title. He also helped the club win the League Cup, and scored in the Champions League final. Ronaldo would miss his penalty in the shootout, but the Red Devils would still win their third Champions League.
Real Madrid 2015-16
By the summer of 2015, Ronaldo was entering his seventh season with Real Madrid. However, more pressure than ever would have been on the Portuguese superstar as the Spanish club had ended the 2014-15 season without a single trophy. That campaign was a success for Ronaldo as he scored a career-high 61 goals, but the following season would be deemed more successful. Ronaldo was once against prolific for the Spanish giants as he scored 51 goals in all competitions.
It would be in the Champions League where he would save his very best football, as he scored 16 goals in the competition and Real Madrid won La Undecima. The final against Atletico Madrid was a cagey affair as the clubs played out a 1-1 draw. However, Ronaldo would have the final say as he scored the match-winning penalty.
Real Madrid 2016-17
Between 2015 and 2016, no player could come close to Ronaldo. The Portuguese would win the Balon d'Or in 2016 and 2017, while international success was also achieved at the European Championships with Portugal in the summer of 2016. The 2016-17 would see Ronaldo win a first league and Champions League double with the Spanish giants, as he scored an incredible 42 goals in all competitions.
Ronaldo would score ten goals in the knockout stages of the Champions League, including a brace in the final success over Juventus. It would be a special season for Ronaldo, as it would be the final league title that he would win with Madrid, while one final Champions League success arrived the following season to bring the curtain down on his glorious career with the Spanish giants.
