4 Goalscoring records Cristiano Ronaldo can break this season

Cristiano Ronaldo is 36 years old and nearing the end of his career, even then the Portuguese ace shows no signs of slowing down.

Despite his amazing achievements, he is still hungry for more: more goals, trophies, individual distinctions, and so on.

He’ll begin his 19th club season this weekend, returning to his old club Manchester United, where he’ll start his second spell.

All eyes will be on Old Trafford as he makes his second appearance for the Red Devils, which will be full of excitement and intensity.

But he has a chance to shatter a lot of records in the following ten months.

The following are the top four goalscoring records:

4. Oldest player to win the Premier League Golden Boot

Oldest player to win the Premier League Golden Boot

Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest scorer in the history of football. And he promises to bring a large number of them to Manchester with him. Sure, the Portuguese striker won’t be able to score 40 league goals like he used to. However, he continues to contribute on a regular basis.

He even won the Serie A Golden Boot last season with 29 goals, five more than his nearest competitor, Romelu Lukaku. A brilliant display of how, despite his advanced age, Ronaldo hasn’t missed a beat in front of goal.

If he wins the top-scorer trophy again this season, he will become the oldest player in Premier League history.

Leicester City’s prolific striker Jamie Vardy now holds the record, having won the award at the age of 33 in the 2019-20 season.

3. Most goals in a Champions League season by a Manchester United player

Most goals in a Champions League season by a Manchester United player.

With 134 goals in the Champions League, Cristiano Ronaldo is the all-time leading scorer. With 17 goals in a single season, he also holds the record for most goals in a single season.

However, his finest season with Manchester United was the title-winning season of 2007-08, when he scored eight goals.

He is third in that category, after Ruud van Nistelrooy’s ten goals in 2001-02 and 12 goals in 2002-03.

Everyone knows how much the Portuguese star enjoys scoring goals in Champions League. So don’t rule out him scoring 12 or more goals once more.

2. First player to score 100 league goals in Premier League and La Liga

First player to score 100 league goals in Premier League and La Liga. Cristiano Ronaldo could become first to do it.

Several players have scored more than 100 goals for two different top-flight leagues this century.

The accomplishment has been accomplished by Gonzalo Higuain (La Liga and Serie A), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Serie A and Ligue 1), Andre-Pierre Gignac (Ligue 1 and Liga MX), and Edinson Cavani (Serie A and Ligue 1).

In the Premier League and La Liga, however, no one has yet to achieve this.

Cristiano Ronaldo steps forward. The Portuguese striker only needs 16 more goals to reach a century in the English Premier League, after scoring 311 in La Liga.

This is the one he’s most likely to record out of all the ones on this list.

1. First player in professional football to cross 800 career goals

Cristiano Ronaldo is just 15 goals away from scoring 800 goals in his career.

With 785 goals, Cristiano Ronaldo is the most prolific goalscorer in football history, according to official figures from the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS).

That’s more than Pele, Romario, Ferenc Puskas, Josef Bican, and his arch-rival Lionel Messi, who are all in the 700s in terms of official goal totals.

He may become the first player in history to reach the elusive 800-goal record with just 15 more goals. Messi, who is ranked 748th, faces no genuine competition.

To put it in perspective, a player would still have a lot less than that if he scored 50 goals in each of his 15 seasons. However, Ronaldo is unlike any other player. He’s the all-time leading scorer in football.
