Cristiano Ronaldo is just a few games away from becoming the first player to achieve this record

Cristiano Ronaldo

By the end of this season, Cristiano Ronaldo has the ability to accomplish something that no other football player in history has ever done.

Ronaldo signed with Al Nassr as a free agent in January of last year, and he is presently playing for the Saudi Pro League team in his second season.

This season, he has scored 26 goals in the league, including a hat-trick against Al Taee on Saturday in a 5-1 rout. Ronaldo is now four goals clear of Al Hilal’s Aleksandar Mitrovic in the Saudi Pro League Golden Boot race.

But in his most recent game, the Serbian sustained a muscular injury that the local media referred to as “heavy,” which would have allowed Ronaldo to distance himself even more.

Furthermore, if state championships are excluded, the Portuguese legend might become the first football player in history to win a Golden Boot in four separate top divisions, according to the Twitugal Twitter account.

In the Premier League with Manchester United, La Liga with Real Madrid, and Serie A with Juventus, Ronaldo led all scorers.

In 2016, The Guardian reported that legendary Brazilian player Romario had won the Golden Boot in Brazil’s top divisions as well as in Spain, the Netherlands, and Brazil’s state title, the Campeonato Carioca.

Numerous international football players, such as Robert Lewandowski, Ruud van Nistelrooy, and Alfredo Di Stefano, have also taken home Golden Boot awards in three separate nations.

Luis Suarez, who led the scoring in the Premier League with Liverpool, La Liga with Barcelona, and the Eredivisie with Ajax, is another player to have accomplished this.

The Uruguayan has made seven league appearances for Inter Miami of the Major League Soccer (MLS) and has already scored five goals.

If Ronaldo is able to attain the incredible milestone by the end of this season, he will become the first player to do so as the Major League Soccer regular season concludes in October.
