Cristiano Ronaldo becomes first player to score 700 club career goals.

Cristiano Ronaldo came off the bench for Manchester United and scored the 700th club goal of his career in their 2-1 win over Everton.

No player in the history of the game has achieved the feat that the Portugal captain reached in his club’s win on Sunday.

Ronaldo was United’s top scorer last season but has struggled for game time under new boss Erik ten Hag.

He has made just one Premier League start this season and played 207 minutes before the game against Everton.

There was speculation of a transfer away from United in the summer, but that failed to materialise. Ronaldo could still leave the club in January.

Despite his limited involvement this season, ten Hag was quick to laud Ronaldo for his achievement and hinted at him having a bigger role to play in his plans.

Breakdown of the 700 goals

  • Real Madrid – 450
  • Manchester United – 144
  • Juventus – 101
  • Sporting Lisbon – 5
