Cristiano Ronaldo sets record with 100th career goal for Juventus
Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo will go down as one of the greatest footballers to ever step on the pitch. His latest milestone proves just how special the Portugal international really is.
With a first-half goal against Sassuolo on Wednesday, Ronaldo became the first player ever to bag 100 goals in three different countries during his career. Talk about unreal.

It was Cristiano Ronaldo’s 29th goal of the season as he inches closer to the 30 mark once again. The 36-year-old scored over 300 goals in his Real Madrid career, while also surpassing 100 during the early days of his footballing journey at Manchester United.
It’s uncertain if Ronaldo will be at Juventus for much longer, though. There is speculation that he may leave this summer if Andrea Pirlo’s men miss out on Champions League football. As of writing, they’re three points off AC Milan for the final UCL spot.
Neymar recently voiced his desire to play with Ronaldo in the future at PSG. Could we see the Juve striker join forces with the Brazilian and Kylian Mbappe in the French capital? One thing is for sure, if he does leave Turin, Ronaldo will have to take a pay cut next season due to his hefty contract.
Nevertheless, Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most clinical finishers this game has ever seen. His latest accomplishment proves just that, and a truly remarkable feat has been reached.
