But do not forget some disappointments such as goodbye Cristiano Ronaldo to the white club after nine seasons defending the elastic merengue and also the resignation of Zinedine Zidane after winning the third Champions League followed.
It has also been a year of proper names. The Real Madrid not only has he triumphed in the collective, but also several players have shone with their own light. Here the most prominent is Luka modric, who has won all the awards at the individual level, crowned as the king of 2018 with the Golden Ball. But also, Raphaël Varane or Sergio Ramos They have finished the year with outstanding.
On the other hand, the illusion has grown within the Madrid fans with the arrival of Vinicius Junior.

In the World Cup in Russia the French central was crowned France. Les Bleus they won the tournament, thus happening Germany. Varane has been the only player from all over the planet to win the World Cup at the level of national teams and also at the club level. The Frenchman has settled in the starting lineup as a couple of Sergio Ramos and with only 25 years is a bulwark for both his national team and for Real Madrid.

With two goals, Bale led the match against Liverpool Jürgen Klopp and also the way to 'The Orejona'. The Welsh winger later asked for more weight in the team and has achieved it little by little, especially after the departure of Cristiano towards the Juventus of Turin.
The illusion. The self-confidence. A different player who has come to stay. Last July, Vinicius turned 18 and set the course for Santiago Bernabeu. At the beginning he alternated the trainings with the first team with performances in the Castile. Julen Lopetegui barely counted on the ex of Flamengo, but with the arrival of Solari to the bench that changed and now it is one more in the rotations.
The captain raised his third 'Orejona' wearing the bracelet. Sergio Ramos is already a merengue legend and he still has some time to spare. The defender of Camas is one of the heavyweights in the dressing room and an authorized voice. He knows how to assume his role as captain of the ship without complexes and he does it perfectly. In addition, it is indisputable in the center of the rear and a pillar of this Real Madrid champion.
