Real Madrid may have handed over what was then world record fee of £80m when they signed Ronaldo from Manchester United back in 2009, but he has paid back that vast investment three times over, as these figures confirm:
* Ronaldo has now scored a remarkable 359 goals in 342 appearances for Real Madrid.
* He has now scored 78 goals in his last 73 Champions League appearances.
* CR7 scored three more goals (13) than the entire Arsenal team in this season's Champions League. He's scored one more than Chelsea (15).
* He has now scored 93 goals in the Champions League.
* He has now scored 16 times and offered up four assists in his 899 minutes of Champions League football this season.
* No player other than Ronaldo has ever scored 15 goals in a Champions League season, but the Real Madrid goal machine has now done it twice.
* Ronaldo is the only player to score in each minute of an official match, with 22 of his goals coming in the 90th minute and beyond.
