During his first spell at Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shared moments on the pitch as teammates. Both were prolific goalscorers and played integral roles in helping the club achieve success prior to their initial exits in 2009 and 2007 respectively. However, 14 years since they last featured together, Ronaldo and Solskjaer are now back again at Manchester United, only this time the Portugese is a player under the management of the Norwegian.
Needful to say that the 36 year old had scored 118 goals during his first stint at Old Trafford and since his return, he has bagged five more which has now taken his tally to 123 goals. As it stands, Ronaldo is now 8th in the all time scoring chart, three goals behind his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who happens to be in 7th position with 126 goals.
With this in mind, Ronaldo now needs to score four more goals to overtake the Norwegian which quite frankly is something he can attain In United's next two games. It is very certain that the Portugese will keep climbing the scoring chart, but he will need 130 more strikes if he intends to draw level with Wayne Rooney in top spot.
Do you think becoming Manchester United's all time top scorer is a possible feat for Cristiano Ronaldo?
