What is Cristiano Ronaldo’s style of play?
Arguably the best finisher in the history of football, Ronaldo’s ability to put himself in the right place at the right time has allowed him to set a host of records since the turn of the century.
Although the winger may have lost a little bit of his pace in recent years due to his age, he still is able to strike fear into opposition defenders by beating them at will via the use of his tremendous amount of skill.
Having played a major part in United’s success during his previous spell at the club, he could provide the catalyst that the club need to mount a title push next season in the Premier League as he would unquestionably thrive playing alongside attacking players such as Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford.
How many goals has Cristiano Ronaldo scored during his career?
Alongside Lionel Messi, Ronaldo has taken the art of goal-scoring to new heights throughout his career as he has illustrated an ability to find the back of net in many different ways.
Ranging from a tap-in to a spectacular overhead kick, the winger is more than capable of producing a moment of magic when his side are in need of inspiration.
The former Madrid man has also managed to find the back of the net on 104 occasions in 175 appearances for Portugal which is the second-highest total recorded by a player at international level.
