The Portuguese newspaper A Bola celebrated the potential milestone with a collage on the front page
Portuguese newspaper A Bola marked the occasion with a collage on the front page of Ronaldo’s most memorable moments for both club and country, with Tuttosport also prominent in the performance.
The 35-year-old superstar achieved 724 goals during his rich career, which began with a modest start at Sporting Lisbon as a 16-year-old.
After 31 appearances for his home club, between 2002 and 2003, Ronaldo moved to Manchester United.
The dazzling widow infamously impressed the Old Trafford hierarchy, including Sir Alex Ferguson, and United players urged the club to catch Ronaldo – which they soon did for a reported £ 12.24 million.
Ronaldo played 292 times for the Premier League giants and left for Real Madrid after six years. The mercurial forward even scored 450 of its total career goals for the La Liga title challenges.
Tuttosport also emphasized the excellent record, with Ronaldo 724 career goals

And after he secured himself as a great club of all time, Ronaldo left on good terms to take on a new challenge in 2018 with Juventus.
With 52 goals in 72 appearances in Turin since the switch, Ronaldo is approaching another impressive record – and he was able to reach his 1000th appearance against the Serie A basement club.
The Portuguese captain has scored 20 goals this season in the league action, with two more strikes in the Champions League.
Team-mate Gianluigi Buffon is also on the brink of history, with the veteran goalkeeper just one game away from becoming the top appearer of the Serie A.
