His fifty goals have come in just seventy games and Ronaldo has now scored in nine consecutive games, becoming the first player to do so since David Trezeguet in 2005.

CR7 is the second-highest scorer in the Italian top flight this season, behind Ciro Immobile (Lazio). The five-times Ballon d'Or winner will hope to continue his scoring form when Juve travel to Hellas Verona on Saturday and Cristiano will also have one eye on the UEFA Champions League ‘round of 16’ tie against Lyon on 26th February.

Off the field, the superstar has had a profound effect on the Italian club’s revenue stream. Earlier this year a report from Deloitte found that the arrival of Ronaldo had allowed Juventus to capitalise on his image which has seen a 17% increase in revenue.

The talisman has more Instagram followers than Real Madrid and Barcelona combined which, according to Deloitte, has "undoubtedly increased Juventus' commercial appeal."
