Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo is one of international soccer’s biggest names. In 2002, he made his debut with Sporting CP and six later accepted a contract with Manchester United and won a Ballon D'or award. As a member of Real Madrid, Ronaldo achieved a record-breaking transfer and gone on to amazing success and to score an huge number of goals. Fans of the sport will enjoy this interesting biography despite the slightly stilted prose.
