Better known as CR7, Cristiano is one of the most outstanding soccer players of recent times, capable of destroying records imposed decades ago and demonstrating every weekend why he is so popular among fans.

Cristiano was a Real Madrid footballer for 9 impressive years in which he won 4 UEFA Champions Leagues, Spanish leagues, King's Cups, Pichichis, Club World Cups and several Golden Balls, among other awards. The commander scored 292 goals for Real Madrid between the 2009-2018 seasons becoming the top scorer at the club in its history.

The departure of Real Madrid was caused by several differences with the directors of the club and his next team was Juventus of Italy where he also won several Italian leagues, cups, and established himself as the top scorer in the competition. 


He scored 81 goals for Juventus between 2018-2022 before he decided to go back to Manchester United where he currently plays.
