Time to talk about one of the most interesting pieces of information of the season, Cristiano Ronaldo might reach 700 goals this season.

Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo has reached so many milestones throughout his career that a new one is almost unheard of.

However, the Juventus player is very close to two specific records that prove he is one of the all-time great players in football history and he could reach them both this season.

There have only been five players in football history who have reached the mythical mark of 700 career-goals.

These strikers are Germany great Gerd Muller, Hungarian forward Ferenc Puskas, King Pele, Brazilian striker Romario, and Austrian baller Josef Bican.

Cristiano Ronaldo currently ranks sixth in the all-time top scorers’ list throughout official competitions.

The Portuguese forward has lived a very prolific career in which he has scored an impressive amount of goals for all the clubs he’s represented, as well as the Portugal National Team.

At 34 years old, Cristiano Ronaldo has reached a stage of his career in which he will start to surpass several of these legends.

CR7’s ultimate goal is to finish his career at the very top of such a prestigious bunch. We have finally reached the season in which this historic moment could happen for him.

Goals at club level

Ronaldo is a very ambitious player who always searched for excellence throughout his career and his numbers at club level speak for themselves.

The Portuguese forward wasn’t that prolific when he played his first years at Sporting CP or Manchester United, but he soon tapped through his real talent.

Starting from the 2006-07 season, we started to get glimpses of the Cristiano Ronaldo who would eventually wow the whole world with his goal-scoring capabilities.

The big break came one season later and he never looked back since then.

WhoScored reveals to us that Cristiano Ronaldo scored only 5 goals for Sporting, he then got 118 for Manchester United.

But his biggest milestone came at Real Madrid during 9 consecutive seasons, Cristiano scored an insane 450 goals during his time there.

Now with a new jersey on his torso, Ronaldo has already scored 26 goals for Juventus so far.

If the star plays on Saturday against Fiorentina and scores a goal, he will reach a staggering 600 goals between all the club’s he’s ever represented.

This is a round number that only legendary players can obtain during their careers.

The next target on Ronaldo’s head

After the Portuguese player reaches the 600 goals at club level anytime this week, his next target could also come before the end of the season.

The Portuguese player has scored 599 club goals and 85 with Portugal.

This rounds up to a total of 684 career-goals, meaning that he is only 16 goals away from the 700.

Although we know that only six matches left in Serie A might not be enough for him to reach this historic milestone, this doesn’t mean Ronaldo won’t give it his best shot.

The man doesn’t only have the 700 goals as motivation for making his biggest effort, he also has another secret weapon.

Cristiano Ronaldo has all the intention to finish the season above other players in the race for the Serie A top-scorer title this season.

The star will likely become an Italian league champion for the first time in his career and he wants to finish the season with this individual trophy as well.

You may have thought that the end of the season wasn’t going to be exciting for Cristiano Ronaldo after getting eliminated from the Champions League.

However, these challenges are just as exciting and we can’t wait to see if he will be able to accomplish them by the end of the season.
