He played as a midfielder for three years before becoming a break out star in 2006. Before Ronaldo signed over to Real Madrid in 2009 he had scored over 100 goals for Manchester United.
Ronaldo’s skills and record-breaking continued to grow with Real Madrid. He scored a record-breaking 200 goals in 197 appearances, and his abilities were recognized by numerous other clubs. Several of those clubs have attempted to buy him from Madrid throughout the years.
Ronaldo appeared in over 438 matches with Madrid and scored 451 goals. Not only is that an astonishing statistic, but it has also helped Ronaldo to win the Player of the Year award multiple times.
In fact, Lionel Messi and Ronaldo were the only two players to win the award for 10 years running, until Luka Modric won in 2018.
Ronaldo recently moved to Juventus FC, where he will finish out his career.
