The Portugese superstar has recached another milestone in his illustrious career
After his goals against Al-Wehda, Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 500 league goals in his career. All the goals have come from Real Madrid, Sporting Lisbon, Real Madrid, Juventus and now Al-Nassr.
A historic milestone for Ronaldo
It all started at Sporting Lisbon when Ronaldo began his career, and his quick ascent into a bright player saw him join Manchester United; he left Sporting with three league goals.
But his career at United turned him into a prolific goal-scorer as the five times Ballon d’Or made history with United, there he established himself as one of the best players in Europe, which saw Real Madrid breaking the bank and signing the player.
And the rest, as they say, is history. Ronaldo carved himself his own career at Real, scoring 311 goals for the Spanish club while shattering every record held by a legendary Real player.
Nobody anticipated the five-time Champions League winner leaving the team, but he did so after establishing his legacy.
He didn’t have a particularly successful time with Juventus, but he never lost his scoring touch; he scored 81 league goals for the club.
Even at Juventus, his stay was brief since he unexpectedly came back to Manchester United. But many questioned the team for bringing in Ronaldo at such an older age.

However, the player stuck to his game and was consistently United’s best player. At Manchester United, Ronaldo added to his Premier League total and took it up to 103 goals.
However, Ronaldo forced a transfer after the team missed out on Champions League qualification, but no club showed interest in acquiring him while he remained at Old Trafford.
Things for the Portuguese, however, went away when an interview with well-known writer Pier Morgan, in which the 38-year-old insulted Erik Ten Hag and the club as well as its owner, resulted in his departure. After that, Ronaldo joined the Saudi club Al Nassr, where he has already scored three goals and set a new record with the 500th league goal of his career.
Real Madrid: 311
Manchester United: 103
Al Nassr: 2
Total career league goals: 500
