Ronaldo's status in this countdown is surely automatic. While the likes of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie have picked up the majority of the goalscoring slack at Old Trafford in recent seasons, Manchester United - unsurprisingly - have found it impossible to replace the sheer enigmatic presence of the Portuguese star.

The 28-year-old versatile attacker, who spent six successful years with the Premier League champions after being plucked from Sporting Lisbon in 2003, fulfilled a lifelong dream by joining Real Madrid for a then world-record fee in 2009.
