Cristiano Ronaldo's insane stats will have Man Utd fans drooling as Old Trafford legend puts club's top scorers to shame

CRISTIANO RONALDO'S insane stats put Manchester United's recent top scorers to shame.

And fans will be drooling at the prospect of the legend banging them in at Old Trafford again.

Ronaldo, 36, completed his stunning return to United on Tuesday.

It comes 12 years after leaving the club to sign for Real Madrid in a world-record £80million deal.

He spent nine seasons at the Bernabeu followed by three with Juventus.

In that time Ronaldo racked up a staggering 551 club goals – 450 for Real and 101 for Juve.

Naturally, his bonkers numbers are in a league alongside only Lionel Messi.

And they are way beyond those registered back at the Red Devils in that time.

In the time Ronaldo has managed 551 club goals, the top scorer for United was Wayne Rooney on 156.

Rooney played alongside Ronaldo under Sir Alex Ferguson but departed back to Everton in 2017.

He is the only man to hit three figures across that time with the next highest goal return from Marcus Rashford.

Current No10 Rashford has 88 strikes followed by team-mate Anthony Martial on 78.

Then former strikers Javier Hernandez and Robin van Persie complete the top five on 59 and 58 respectively.

Juan Mata is next on 51 goals.

As well as his 551 goals, Ronaldo won four league titles, seven domestic cups, four Champions League crowns, two Super Cups and three Club World Cups.

RON'S RECORD

On the international stage, he has reached a record 109 goals for Portugal and lifted both the Euro 2016 and Nations League 2019 trophies.

That all helped contribute to Ballon d'Or glory in 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017 – to add to the 2008 gong he won while still at United.

In the same period, United have ten honours – four of them Community Shields – with two Premier League titles and the Europa League.

United have paid an initial £19.7million for Ronaldo and will pay the superstar £480,000 per week.

After completing a medical in Lisbon over the weekend, he penned a two-year deal – but there is the option of a 12-month extension.

Ronaldo, who scored 118 goals in 292 matches during his first spell, said: "Manchester United is a club that has always had a special place in my heart, and I have been overwhelmed by all the messages I have received since the announcement on Friday.

“I cannot wait to play at Old Trafford in front of a full stadium and see all the fans again.

“I'm looking forward to joining up with the team after the international games, and I hope we have a very successful season ahead.”
