Cristiano Ronaldo's Stats During His Time At Real Madrid Are Genuinely Hard To Believe

But nine years later, after a meeting with Real president Florentino Perez - who was adamant that no long drawn out saga should come of the whole affair - Ronaldo decided to move on to another challenge.
It was the end of an era but the Portugal international can look back at a pretty attractive looking stat record.
He is not only their all-time top-scorer but his contribution in terms of assists is also impressive.
Just check out his overall stats. Unbelievable.

You begin to appreciate just how unbelievable Ronaldo was for Real.
Of course no one will forget the likes of Ferenc Puskás, Raul and Alfredo Di Stéfano - but it's fair to assume that now Ronaldo must be crowned Real's greatest ever player.
Ronaldo has moved to Juventus for a reported fee of €100m but everyone will remember the extraordinary impact he had at Madrid.
