Christian Ronaldo scored his 60tieth hat-trick in his professional career on Sunday against Norwich City at Old Trafford.
The prolific forward at 37, who is the highest goal scorer for Manchester United this season in all competition, scored 30 hat-tricks before his 30tieth birthday.
Accordingly, the five-time Ballon D’Or winner before he departed from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009, scored a total of 84 goals in 196 appearances for the Red Devils.
At this age, little wonder how the Portuguese have seemingly played football at its peak.
With what he tagged the second phase, Ronaldo recorded the 30 hat-tricks after his 30-year-old birthday against the Canaries.
However, Ronaldo who has registered a total of 21 goals for United in all competitions got a bonus of £750,000 and an extra £100,000 for scoring a hat-trick.
Emerging reports from England reveal that, onwards to the end of the season, Ronaldo will earn £100,000 for every goal scored and with United having 6 games left, the iconic forward will aim to reach the 30 goals mark.
