  • Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo Manchester United transfer news

Ronaldo has won over 25 major trophies in his career and is still raring to go.

They will both be remembered as two of the greatest - if not *the* two greatest - players of all time.

Number of goals scored from Feb 2nd 2017 onwards.

Real Madrid's Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo is celebrating his 33rd birthday on Monday, and the Spanish football club have congratulated their star player on this occasion.

Statistically speaking, Les Parisiens' No. 10 is shaping up nicely.

As UEFA Champions League action is around the corner, defending champions Real Madrid are destined to face PSG, who are considered as dark horses of the prestigious European competition.

PSG now lead the way in Ligue 1 by 11 points thanks to the form of Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe, setting up the first leg of the last-16 tie on February 14 perfectly.

Ronaldo expertly skilled his way past three defenders before curling in a finish from outside the box to the left hand corner. "He could still win the next Ballon d'Or", Silva said in a statement.

Beckham, who also spent time at PSG during his glittering career, told Marca: 'It is going to be hard with PSG on top form at the moment.

"The little difference between them is that Messi, with the ball, one on one, or even against two, is hard to stop".

Currently, Neymar is fourth in the all-time list of Brazil's top scorers - two behind Romario in third place, nine behind Ronaldo in second and 24 behind the legendary Pele. The five-time World Champion topped the group comfortably while losing just once during the qualification.

He also helped Portugal qualify for the World Cup finals via the play-offs against Switzerland.
