Serie A: Cristiano Ronaldo Set To Break Pele's Record

Gary Neville has stated that Cristiano Ronaldo is not planning on retiring soon until he has beaten the goalscoring record of Pele, Brazil's legend, Diamond Hub 101 reports.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Neville, who played with the Portuguese in Manchester United, said the Juventus star wants to be known as the greatest footballer of all time and would achieve that if he overthrows Pele...

It’s an obsession, an absolute obsession with scoring goals, applying yourself every day, being the fittest he can possibly be. I think he’s lifted his professionalism every single year and progressed. I’ve got no doubts he wants to play, and Jamie Carragher mentioned James Milner wants to play into his late 30s – 40, I think Ronaldo has a plan to take over Pele’s record. I genuinely believe he wants to beat Pele’s numbers, that’s where I think he’s at in his mind. He wants to be the greatest of all time and that is his sole purpose, understanding along the way if he is the greatest of all time the teams he plays in will win trophies and be successful.
