    Yes.

    I think both of them will get into the top 3, injuries permitting.

    Can't see Ronaldo reaching 767 goals, he's 31 and its took him 13 or 14 years to get 536.

    Messi has a better chance, injury permitting.

    He's moving further and further to the centre as he's got older, for most of his career he played as a winger. I also think he'll play until he's about 38.

    He will play until he's 38 but if he's even scoring 20 a Season those last few years I'd be absolutely amazed.

    Off the top of my head... Di Natale and Toni did it.

    I'm a huge fan of both those players but it'd be fair to say Ronaldo is better than both of them.

    Suppose it depends where he ends up. PSG, possibly. United again or still Madrid, no chance IMO.

    He was *.

    Goals mean nothing if he can't hold up the ball and link the play.

    After tonight's hat trick against Wolfsburg, Ronaldo is only 10 short of Jimmy McGrory's record of 550 competitive goals.

    Looks like Ronaldo might be out for the CL game against Man City.
    Hamstring injury.

    With Real madrid having just 2 games to go, Ronaldo is now just 7 short of McGrory's record.
    Doubt he will do it this season.
    Messi still a long way to go.
