Josef Bican leading with 62 goals might just be over thrown with Cristiano Ronaldo on his track with 760 goals as at Sunday just before completing his 36th birthday in February.
Cristiano Ronaldo with 760 Goals
Cristiano Ronaldo has on to himself a total of 760 career goals at Juventus, making him one of the greatest goal scorers of all time and he’s still prolific with more goals coming as Juventus engage in more game this 21 season.
Pele stopped at 757 and Romario at 740
Ronaldo has already overtaken the legendary Pele, who scored 757 goals, including 643 with Santos, 77 with Brazil and 37 with New York Cosmos.
Some give Pele 644 Santos goals, but there is one that most consider to have been a Sao Bento own goal.
Meanwhile, Romario boasted of having reached 1,000 goals at the age of 41 in 2007, but he has scored a total of 740 official goals.
Unstoppable Ronaldo is about to turn 36
Aged 35 and ready to turn 36 on February 5, Ronaldo averages more than one goal per Serie A game this season, having played 13 matches and scored 15 times.
He is the league’s top scorer followed by Romelu Lukaku (12), Ciro Immobile (11), Joao Pedro, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Luis Muriel (10).
Ronaldo didn’t manage to be crowned Capocannoniere in neither of his first two seasons at the Old Lady.
However, he was top scorer once in the Premier League in 2007/08 and three times in LaLiga Santander in 2010/11, 2013/14 and 2014/15.
In addition, Ronaldo was named Champions League’s top scorer on seven occasions – more than any other footballer – in 2007/08, 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18.
Chasing Ali Daei
If Ronaldo beats Bican’s record, one of the few left to break will be that of the top scorer in the history of the national teams.
Ali Daei holds the record with a total of 109 goals and the Juventus forward needs just seven to match
