Fans hailed Cristiano Ronaldo after the he reached another landmark in his remarkable career when he scored his 700th club goal to put Manchester United in front against Everton in the Premier League on Sunday.

The veteran forward, who has found minutes hard to come by under new United coach Erik ten Hag, was summoned off the bench in the first half at Goodison Park for the injured Anthony Martial, putting his team 2-1 in front 14 minutes after coming on.

It took him to the landmark of 700 strikes, 20 years and two days after his first goal for Sporting Lisbon as a scrawny teenager.

He is now 10 club goals ahead of his once great rival Lionel Messi.

And one fan tweeted: ‘The end of the GOAT debate.’

Another said: ‘700 club career goals for the GOAT.’

And a third fan said: ‘Ronaldo, Manusia 700 gol. GREATEST OF ALL TIME.’

Ronaldo has played for four clubs during his career – Sporting Lisbon, United (twice), Real Madrid and Juventus.

He scored five goals in 31 appearances for Sporting, 450 in 438 matches for Real and 101 in 134 games for Juventus. In his first spell for United he netted 118 times in 298 fixtures for the club and in his current second stint has 26 in 48 matches .

It’s the latest stunning achievement in the forward’s career – either individually or as part of a team.
