Does Ronaldo find a savior for his historical throne?

 The clubs participating in the European Champions League are awaiting the draw for the group stage, which will be held next Thursday in Istanbul, Turkey.

So far, 26 teams have qualified for the group stage, while 6 others will qualify for this week's qualifiers.

It is possible that the 2022-2023 season will be exceptional, given the possibility of the absence of Portuguese legend Cristiano Ronaldo from the tournament for the first time since the beginning of his professional career.

Ronaldo, along with the rest of his teammates in Manchester United, failed to lead the team to qualify for the Champions League at the end of last season, after he finished the season outside the top 4 in the English Premier League.

Champions League legend

Ronaldo considers the Champions League his favorite tournament, especially in light of his monopoly on most of the records in it, which made many consider him the best player in the history of the competition.

The 37-year-old is the top scorer in the Champions League with 141 goals, 16 goals ahead of his Argentine rival, Lionel Messi.

Ronaldo is also the most goal-maker in the history of the competition, with 42 assists, 6 more than Messi.

Ronaldo is also the most visible player in the tournament with 187 games, ahead of former Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas (181), and the most goals scored in one season (17) goals.

Who will save the throne of Ronaldo?

The Portuguese international is afraid to miss the Champions League this season, for fear of losing any of his records, especially the title of historical top scorer, despite the difficulty of this happening in one season.

And press reports reported earlier that Ronaldo asked to leave the English club before the start of the season, to move to a club that participates in the Champions League.

Despite this, the son of Portugal started the season with United and participated in the first two rounds of the Premier League, in light of the difficulty of moving to a club suitable for him.

Most of the major clubs find it difficult to contract with the "Don", due to his huge salary, as well as his advanced age (37 years).

The options available to Ronaldo are limited, especially after Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund closed the door to the inclusion of Ronaldo for various reasons.

But the days remaining until the end of the current summer transfer period may witness a sudden transformation in Ronaldo's future, as a club may succeed in saving his throne and giving him the opportunity to continue to appear in the Champions League, instead of his absence for the first time.
