Ronaldo Nazario's Dream XI Is A Perfect Collection Of Players

After gracing Serie A, La Liga and the international stage, the legendary Ronaldo Nazario has played with and against some of the very best during his 18-year career.

With past and present greats included, Ronaldo revealed his dream team while speaking to FATV and it might just be the greatest side we've ever seen.

At club level, the two-time Ballon d'Or winner, scored 352 goals, as well as bagging 62 in 98 for the Selecao. O Fenômeno' graced the field for Cruzeiro, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Corinthians and the Brazilian national team.


But who features in the dream XI? Well it could possibly be the best dream eleven we've ever seen.

The legendary Gianluigi Buffon is in between the sticks, protected by a star-studded backline comprising of Brazilian full-backs Cafu and Roberto Carlos, and Italian centre-backs Paolo Maldini and Fabio Cannavaro.

His midfield has Zinedine Zidane and Andrea Pirlo effortlessly pulling the strings, in addition to the sublime talents of Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi - two magical Argentines of different generations.

Up top, he decided to pick himself alongside Pele and Ronaldo - completing quite possibly the greatest collection of 11 players into a starting XI. World-class talent all over the pitch. Good luck against his this side.

In terms of Ronaldo himself, a study from Play Ratings has uncovered that, with fluctuating currency being considered, Ronaldo's big-money move from Barcelona to Inter Milan would be worth a staggering €433 million in the current market.

After he ripped it up in a solitary season at Barcelona, scoring 47 goals in 49 appearances, he signed for Italian giants Inter Milan for €28 million euros in 1997.


He broke the transfer world record for the second time in his career.

It was pretty crazy money at the time but Inter got more than their money's worth as their star striker notched 59 goals in 99 games despite constant injury issues.
