The downfall of their ultimate squad began in 2018 when Ronaldo left Spain to join Juventus for a three year contract deal. In 2021, he made a sensational comeback to Manchester United which was one of the most heartwarming moments in football history.
In 2019, PSG signed Keylor Navas and Madrid were in an urgent need of a decent goalkeeper. They signed Thibaut Courtois whose first season with the club was not as good as expected but he later showed his worth.
In 2021, PSG signed Madrid’s most beloved player of all time – Sergio Ramos. With his departure, Raphael Varane decided to compete in the toughest league in the world (Premier League).
Talking about their current squad situation, only four players from their original iconic squad are left – Luka Modric, Dani Carvajal, Toni Kroos and Karim Benzema.
Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Isco have also left the club this year. Bale has signed Los Angeles FC whereas Isco has joined Seville.
