Opinion:Christiano Ronaldo Can Become Man United All Time Top Scorer Before He Retire

Cristiano Ronaldo has remained brilliant from an individual standpoint despite a difficult year in terms of club and country goals. In the wake of Lionel Messi's latest Ballon d'Or triumph, critics have found a way to poke fun at him, but he responded recently by scoring a brace against Arsenal.

The 36-year-old Manchester United midfielder became the first player in football history to score at least 800 official goals after scoring twice in a 3-2 victory at Old Trafford. He has since received numerous accolades for his achievement.

However, Ronaldo has scored 130 of his 801 career goals while wearing the red and white of Real Madrid, making him the club's all-time leading scorer. It's possible that another record he'd like to break before he hangs up his boots is becoming Manchester United's all-time leading goalscorer.

Statistics show that Ronaldo must score at least 123 goals to surpass former Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney's Old Trafford record of 253 goals. Rooney played for Derby County for 13 years after leaving United. This would be a difficult assignment for any other player, given his age, but the 36-year-old who shows no signs of slowing down is more than up to the task.

Unless he stops scoring for United, it's hard to see him surpassing Wayne Rooney as United's all-time leading scorer any time soon. Ronaldo is a legend who had a career that spanned nearly two decades. His name has been immortalized in gold letters, and future generations will remember him as one of the greatest players of all time.

Manchester United's all-time leading goalscorer Ronaldo may not be able to achieve this goal before retiring.
