The Portuguese star spent nine years at the Santiago Bernabeu and led them to four Champions League titles in that period.
He also won four Ballon d'Or awards among several other individual titles to crown his efforts at the La Liga side.
Since the 35-year-old joined the Old Lady close to two years ago, he has scored 51 goals in 71 matches for the Bianconeri.
He also clinched two titles at the end of his first season at the Allianz Stadium, and he could add to his trophy tally when the ongoing campaign is over.
