Is Ronaldo everything to Man Utd?

Let's say Ronaldo leaves Man Utd, how much of an effect do you think it will have on Man Utd? If he's not in the team, do you think Man Utd can win the Premier League and Champions League? Fans of Chelsea and Liverpool claim that Man Utd is Ronaldo, and vice versa. Ronaldo scores most of the goals and he provides most the assists. I personally don't agree. I think there's much more to Man Utd than Ronaldo. We can see this in the last two games, where Ronaldo didn't contribute much, but Man Utd won those two matches against Man City and Sunderland due to the work rate of the whole team. The reason why Ronaldo could score so many goals is because Alex has given him that free role up front, even though he plays in the winger's position. The fact that Man Utd has an excellent backfour and good central midfielders, Ronaldo does not need to worry about tracking back to help out in the defence so that he can focus on the attack. He also has good striker in front of him that he can link-up with. He can also move about freely without worrying about the space he leaves behind because there's always another Man Utd player covering that space for him. Man Utd plays as a team, and Ronaldo's individual achievements is due to the fact that he had great help from excellent players around him. What do you think about this?
