Cristiano Ronaldo , the icon of Portugal and current member of Juventus, has just become the top scorer in history, with 760 goals in his career. After Juventus’ game against Napoli , where Ronaldo had the opportunity to score a goal, the man has been crowned the greatest scorer in history.
During this season, Ronaldo has scored 20 goals in the 19 games he has had, and with this he has broken the record held by Josef Bicard, who scored 759 goals between 1931 and 1955 in clubs and by country according to FIFA. Of course, at this rate, Ronaldo would be increasing that record, which will be more difficult to break. At the moment only Lionel Messi, who exceeds the figure of 680 goals could surpass him.
Ronaldo already surpasses other iconic players in history such as Romário and Pelé from Brazil, as well as Ferenc Puskás and Gerd Müller, who are all now retired, Romario being the last in 2009.
Cristiano Ronaldo began his career in 2001 at the age of 16 playing for Andorinha, Nacional and Sporting CP at an early age, and later moving on to teams such as Manchester United, Real Madrid where he was 11 years old and now Juventus with whom he has played since 2018 . Ronaldo is the highest paid player in history and the one who makes the most money beyond his salary on his team.
Cristiano Ronaldo won the FA Cup in his first season with Manchester United and led them to win three Premier League, the Champions League and won the Club World Cup. At 23 he received his first Golden Ball. With Real Madrid, he won 15 titles, including two in La Liga , four Champions League titles and became the club’s biggest scorer.
In his country he was designated the best player of all time in 2015, and led them to win the Eurocup in 2016, being the first time that the country has won one of the main championships around the world. In fact, this prompted the Madeira Airport in Funchal to be renamed the Cristiano Ronaldo International Airport , where there is even a bust with the footballer’s face.
But Ronaldo’s impact has gone beyond the field, the man is one of the public figures who generate the most profits, being singled out as the highest paid athlete, and the most famous according to ESPN . Recently, he highlighted the news that the man had become the first footballer to have generated profits that exceed one billion dollars.
Much of Cristiano Ronaldo’s current earnings are due to off-court sponsorships and his Instagram page, which is the most followed on the platform with more than 255 million followers.
Ronaldo’s style of play is what has made him the figure that he is. A strong attacker, the man performs well on either wing as well as center while maintaining perfect control of both feet when shooting. Similarly, one of the fastest footballers without manipulating or with control of the ball has been singled out, and his record of goals is a sign of how he has evolved and adapted to the games that are presented to him. Focused entirely on his health and body, he has everything to become the greatest scorer in history . What do you think?
