Cristiano Ronaldo tipped to outscore Pele

Cristiano Ronaldo has been tipped by his agent Jorge Mendes to surpass Pele as the "best scorer in football" while with the Italian side Juventus. 

Ronaldo netted his 700th goal in his career on Monday as Portgual suffered a 2-1 loss in the hands of Ukraine. And Merges claims that CR7 is the greatest player of all the time. 

"His numbers don't lie and light up the overwhelming way Cristiano Ronaldo shatters records, which 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," he said. 

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

The 34-year-old trails Pele 67 goals having played 179 matches more than the Brazilian.
