Post-CR7 drought at Utd continues

Since leaving Manchester United in 2009, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 319 more goals than all five of his successors of the English club's iconic number seven jersey.
 
When Cristiano Ronaldo joined United back in 2003 he arrived as a promising teenager with phenomenal footwork, dribbling ability and searing pace.

Six years later under the guidance of former Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson, he departed as a Ballon d'Or winner with 118 goals across all competitions.
 
With Ronaldo keeping to the tradition of club legends donning the number, which includes David Beckham, Eric Cantona and George Best - what has ensued over the past 10 years has been nothing short of remarkable.
 
Five players have since taking over the responsibility and the latest, Alexis Sanchez has now departed.
 
The Chile international was United's marquee signing in January 2018 after scoring 30 goals across all competitions for Arsenal the season before he arrived.
 
A two-time Copa America winner and an explosive forward with the personality and global appeal that look destined to lead the club back to the pinnacle of English football.
 
However, he departed one year later, with just three league goals to his name and is now considered as the one of the worst transfers in football history due to his reported wages that ranked him as the highest paid player in the English top-flight.
 
Along with Sanchez, all five players have score at an average rate of 1.4 goals per season in the league.
 
Meanwhile, Ronaldo netted a staggering 333 league goals for Real Madrid and Juventus respectively over the same period.
