The 32-year-old has scored 44 goals in just 48 games for Real Madrid and Portugal so far in the calendar year. He also scored a brace in Madrid’s 4-1 Champions League final win over Juventus in Cardiff earlier this year.

Ronaldo outclassed longstanding Barcelona rival Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain’s striker Neymar, who made headlines for emerging the world’s most expensive player recently.
