Check out Ronaldo’s situation in full below.
Guinness World Records recently sent Ronaldo a certificate.
He is confirmed to be the male footballer with the highest number of goals at the national team level.
“Guinness World Records certificated the male player with the most goals in international football to Cristiano Ronaldo from 2003 to 2021,”
Ronaldo himself was grateful for the certificate given by the Guinness World Records.
He doesn’t want to stop here where he still wants to score more goals with the Portugal national team.
“Thanks to Guinness World Records for the award. I am happy to be recognized as a world record breaker. Let’s fight to increase this number of goals,” he said.
Ronaldo left the Portuguese national team early after breaking Ali Daei’s record.
He is currently heading to Manchester to prepare for his second debut with the Red Devils.
Cristiano Ronaldo has already smashed shirt sale records after his return to Manchester United.
In one of the biggest transfers the Premier League has ever seen, the 36-year-old has returned to the place where he earned his name.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saw the chance to bring back the five-time Ballon d’Or winner after he told Juventus he wanted to depart.
United believe they have got the striker for a bargain, too, costing just an opening £13m which could rise to £19m through add-ons.
But supporters can barely contain their enthusiasm after the return of the Old Trafford hero, who won his first Ballon d’Or and Champions League at the club.
So much so, that Ronaldo has already broken the record for most shirt sales just days after it was proclaimed he would don his preferred No. 7 kit.
Fans queued up all day outside Old Trafford to get their hands on the iconic shirt as soon as it was formally stated that Edinson Cavani had given up his number.
And in a matter of just four hours, United had the highest day of online sales ever on a single sports merchandise site outside of North America.
Even more remarkable was the first hour alone of sales best ever full day of global sales for United Direct, the official club merchandise site.
The online shop is run by Fanatics, who announced that Ronaldo became the highest-selling player ever in the 24-hour period that followed his transfer to the Red Devils.
It saw him outdo his football rival Lionel Messi’s move to Paris Saint-Germain, as well as Tom Brady joining Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Ronaldo could make his second debut for United next week in the first round of Premier League fixtures after the international break.
The Red Devils take on Newcastle at home in what is expected to be one of the biggest crowds the stadium has seen in years.
The Portugal international maintained he was over the moon to back at his old club, where he spent six years before joining Real Madrid for a then-world record fee of £80m.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been mentioned as the most popular Manchester United number 7 ever, but is only third on the all-time roster for UK football.
The Portuguese forward made a remarkable return to Old Trafford on Deadline Day when he returned to the club from Juventus, 12 years after departing for Real Madrid in 2009.
This week he was handed back his legendary number 7 shirt, which he wore during his first stint at the club between 2003 and 2009 in which he won three Premier League titles, the Champions League, two League Cups and a Ballon d’Or.
But after being given exceptional permission by the Premier League and convincing teammate Edinson Cavani to hand the number over, it’s been reported that he is only the third most popular number 7 in UK football history.
That is according to an analysis by sports platform OLBG of tens of thousands of posts on social media, looking at volume, interactions and text opinion analysis
Number one on the list is another former Manchester United forward and Celtic legend Henrik Larsson.
The Swede scored 242 goals in 313 matches for the Bhoys and comes out on top of the list as the most popular number 7 in UK football history.
Second on the list is Liverpool legend and former England manager Kevin Keegan, who scored 100 goals in 323 appearances for the Reds and was the face of the club in the 70’s during one of their most dominant eras.
