Ronaldo, Messi, Suarez: Who's the fastest player to 100 goals for a club in the 21st century?

Cristiano Ronaldo won four Champions League titles with Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the greatest goalscorer of all time.

At the time of writing, the Juventus superstar has rippled the back of the net 752 times for club and country throughout the course of his distinguished career.

For Juve, the 35-year-old has now scored 77 goals in just 99 appearances in all competitions after his brace against Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday.

His record with the Italian giants is stellar, but it really does pale in comparison to his goalscoring achievements at Real Madrid.

With Los Blancos, Ronaldo ripped up the rulebook, finding the back of the net at a rate that mere mortals still struggle to comprehend.

Ronaldo with Real Madrid

In his first 105 games with Real Madrid, the Portuguese forward scored 100 goals, the fastest any player has hit three-figures with one club in the 21st century.

So how do the rest of modern football's greatest attackers compare to Ronaldo? Well, let's find out...
