Super-agent Jorge Mendes believes that Cristiano Ronaldo’s best “is yet to come” while CR7 believes ‘records come looking for me!’

The Juventus forward scored his 700th career goal, taking him among an elite group of players who have managed the remarkable feat.

“Not just anyone can reach this figure. Thank you to my teammates, colleagues and Coaches who have helped me to become the player I am,” Ronaldo told reporters after Portugal’s 2-1 defeat to Ukraine..

“I am disappointed that we didn’t win, but proud of the team.

“How many records do I have? I don’t know. I have to enjoy the moment and thank those who helped me reach this impressive mark.

“Records come naturally – I don’t go looking for them, records come looking for me! Without having an obsession, they happen naturally.”

His agent Jorge Mendes was naturally full of praise for his compatriot and believes the Portuguese legend will soon surpass Brazilian legend Pele.

“His numbers don’t lie, and light up the overwhelming way Cristiano Ronaldo shatters records,” Mendes told Tuttosport.

“They elevate him to the category of best player in the history of football, with a big difference compared to the second [best] for all he achieved with the different clubs he represented, whether in England, Spain or now in Italy and also with the Portuguese national team.

“The fact is that with Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal have already played in three Finals, winning two of them.

“Cristiano has reached the remarkable milestone of 700 goals, but I have no doubt that he’ll surpass Pele as the best scorer in football history, and he’ll do it with Juventus.

“After all, 68 goals aren’t a lot for this extraordinary Cristiano Ronaldo, are they? It’s also because I’m convinced that his best is yet to come.”
