Ronaldo had spent almost ten years at Madrid, and the club’s fans love him. He has been the greatest player in the club’s history, and his numbers prove it all. In nine years with Real Madrid, Ronaldo managed to score a mind-blowing 450 goals.

It wasn’t just the sheer volume of goals that were extraordinary; it was the fact that Ronaldo stepped up when things mattered the most. He won four Champions League titles with Real Madrid and was their top scorer in each of those campaigns.
