Ronaldo scored 84 goals with Manchester United in his six seasons at the club, before netting a whopping 311 goals with Real Madrid in LaLiga, in 292 games. He joined Juventus from Real Madrid in 2018-19 season where he has clinched four championship titles with Spanish club Real Madrid.
Juventus are playing extremely well from the last 2 seasons and a lot of credit should be given to Ronaldo and the club manager Maurizio Sarri, who are chasing another Serie A title at the moment. They are currently at the top of the league standings with 80 points from 34 matches followed by Inter Milan, Atlanta, and Lazio with 72, 71, and 69 points respectively.
Ronaldo currently stands second in the list of top scorers with 99 international goals falling behind 109 international goals by Ali Daei.
He is the only player in the history of football who has scored more than 50 goals in England, Germany, and Italy. He is certainly the living legend and one of the best players who have played the sport along with the likes of Lionel Messi, Pele, Ronaldinho, etc.
