Year after year, always trying

to improve, improve.

With more experience,

with more objectives, more desires,

proving to my family,

proving to my dad,

that the decisions I took

in the beginning, at the age of 12,

were the best ones.

There are people who love me.

There are people who hate me...

who say that I'm arrogant,

that I'm vain or I'm this and that.

That's part of my success.

I was made to be the best.

My dear boy!

Your mother's heart almost exploded.

That's what I wanted to say

to you too, Ronaldo!

Oh, my dear boy, you deserved it!

The Ballon d'Or is the very best

individual award for any player.

It means you're considered

the best player in the world.

To see Messi win the Ballon d'Or

four times in a row

was difficult for me.

After he won the second or third

in a row, I said,

"I'm not coming here anymore."

Why do I come here

if I am doing so well for my team?

Why should I come here?

I have to win more Ballons d'Or.

For me, the year gone by

was the best year of my career.

Without any doubt.

I try to fight with my

weapons every day, every match,

throughout my career,

to be the best ever.

That second Ballon d'Or

was obviously one of the most

beautiful moments in my life.

But my ambition ends up

always wanting more,

always wanting more.

A new year,

goals to score, trophies to win...

That is the way I live my life.

- Good morning.

- Good morning.

Good morning, Cris.

Come here!

- Give Daddy a kiss!

- Yes. OK.

Silly head.

Let's go.

- Done!

- Give me five! Well done.

The Champions League final

is almost here

and Carlo Ancelotti's Real Madrid

is searching for a new title.

For the whites, it could be La Decima.

The last time that Real Madrid

won the trophy was in 2002.

...for sure,

Cristiano is doing very well.

Clearly, Ronaldo is on top form,

clearly ready to win.

I knew that after Real Madrid hired me,

the pressure would mount.

Real Madrid wanted to win

the Champions League, La Decima,

and obviously, to win,

you need to have the best players.

- Whoops!

- I didn't get hurt.


Shall we race to the door?

- Yes.

- Now!

I'm going to win!

I'm going to win!

I won! I won! See?

I was at Manchester for six years.

And... I won practically everything

there was to win.

- Impressive, isn't it?

- This is incredible.

- Is there going to be a match or not?

- No.

That was when Real Madrid showed up.

They were willing to pay

a lot of money for me.

I wanted more. I wanted another league.

I wanted a different kind of football,

and I wanted a different chapter,

a different challenge in my life.

The stadium was full

to welcome me to the team.

90,000 people at the stadium.

I felt like a star,

like a pop star or a Hollywood star.

Today the time has arrived.

Today we welcome to his new home,

today we welcome Cristiano Ronaldo.

For me, I've achieved

my childhood dream,

which was to play for Real Madrid.

I didn't expect the stadium

to be so full today just to see me.

I can't believe it.


Let's go.

One, two, three.

Hala Madrid!

If I had to choose one title,

the Champions League

would surely be the most important.

The mythical Decima

was the most wanted trophy in Madrid.

Preparing the shot.

That one might be a goal.

Goal! Goal for Atltico Madrid.

It's clearly in.

Godin scored. Minute 36.

Atltico takes the lead

on the scoreboard.

400 million viewers all over the world

in more than 200 countries

are watching this match.

And now, Real Madrid

needs to improve and recover

if they want to win La Decima.

And the world's best player,
