Cristiano Ronaldo vs Lionel Messi professional career
It’s a able-bodied formed agitation which seemed to achieve if Barcelona won the Champions League and League bifold in 2011, headed by Lionel Messi who won Fifa 15 coins Apple Amateur of the Year and the Ballon D’or for the third year in succession.
However this year has seen a shift in the balance of power towards that of Cristiano Ronaldo, often heralded in the pre-Messi era as the greatest individual player on the planet.
In his adult professional career Ronaldo has played for three clubs in three different countries, Sporting CP, Manchester United and Real Madrid respectively. In that time he has played 467 times scoring 269 goals.
The most impressive of these totals has been his time at Real Madrid where he has scored 146 goals in just 144 performances.
He has 11 club honours which include the Champions League and FIFA World Club Cup whilst also winning the League in two different countries.
He has 63 individual playing honours including several Premier League Player of the months, inclusion in European and World teams of the year, a Ballon Do’r, a FIFA World Player of the Year and a FIFPro World Player of the year.
In summer 2009 he transferred from Manchester United to Real Madrid for ￡80 million, making him the most expensive footballer of all time.
In his adult professional career Messi has played just for Barcelona and has played 329 times scoring 253 times, in the 2011-2012 season he scored 73 goals, becoming the highest individual season goal-scorer in the history of football whilst also surpassing Cesar Rodriguez as Barcelona’s highest individual goal scorer in official competitions.

He has 14 World records and 5 Barcelona records all completed before his 25th birthday.
Cristiano Ronaldo has denticulate added goals but with addition 100 added appearances than Messi
who has been attributed on the Apple Stage a dozen times added than Ronaldo whilst getting two years younger.
It is about account advertence that Ronaldo has played the majority of his career in the
Barclays Premier League which, beneath the affirmation of Rupert Murdoch active Sky pundits,
is a abundant added aggressive analysis than the duopoly featured in La Liga. Indeed, Ronaldo has averaged added than a ambition a bold for Real Madrid which outstretches Messi’s all-embracing goal scoring almanac for Barcelona.
Also Messi has played for Barcelona, broadly admired as one of the best teams in the apple
and for the endure 4 years, the greatest aggregation back the aurora of altruism (the Barcelona PR team told us this fact)
Also it can be argued that Ronaldo has spent the physical prime of his career (argued to be between 25 and 29) in Spain whereas Messi is yet to hit his.
Who wins on numbers:
A tie, Ronaldo’s got less individual accolades but hasn’t had the advantage of playing for the greatest team in all of humanity for the last few years and in the same division, Ronaldo’s goal scoring record outdoes Messi’s making it difficult to choose.
