Cristiano Ronaldo Closing In On Outstanding Goalscoring Record

It genuinely seems like Cristiano Ronaldo is breaking a new record every time he steps onto the pitch and he’s closing in on a new goalscoring record.

Ronaldo scored both goals in the 2-1 win over Sporting Gijon at the weekend, a result that now sees Real six points clear of Barcelona at the top of La Liga.

And having scored five goals in his last two league games, Ronaldo is now a mere 13 goals away from becoming the all-time top scorer in the top five European Leagues.

He’s already third in the ranks, ahead of former Derby and Middlesbrough striker Steve Bloomer and his regular rival Lionel Messi, who has scored 321 league goals.

Ronaldo currently has 354 goals, eleven behind German legend Gerd Muller and twelve behind England and Spurs hero Jimmy Greaves. He recently signed a five-year contract with Real Madrid and vowed to continue playing until he is 40 so unless something goes terribly wrong, you’d expect CR7 to add another accolade to his impressive collection.

He needs 13 goals to officially be the all-time top scorer in the top five leagues in Europe.
