Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney sent former teammate and Real Madrid record-breaker Cristiano Ronaldo a message via social media.

Ronaldo recently became Real's all-time leading scorer, overtaking club legend Raul Gonzalez in scoring 324 times for the Spanish giants.

His benchmark goal came in Los Blancos' 3-0 win over Levante at the weekend, seeing them climb to the top of La Liga's standings.

Rooney, a former teammate of Ronaldo's at United, took to Twitter to congratulate the Portuguese superstar on making history.

The pair were once a part of one of England's most feared attacks, teaming up for the first time in 2004.

The Portugal captain joined United in 2003, and went on to score 118 times for the Red Devils before leaving for Real in 2009.

The duo were also infamously involved in 2006 FIFA World Cup drama, when Ronaldo pleaded with a referee to have Rooney sent off in the quarter-final of the tournament.

Both players, however, insisted that any ill-feelings from the incident did not carry over into the Red Devils' training camp in the season that followed.

Do you think Rooney and Ronaldo could maybe play together again one day? Let us know in the comments section below.
