  • Maybe you should clarify a bit what exactly is meant by all club competitions. For example, would you count Lionel Messi's goals for Barcelona B and Barcelona C in lower-level competitions. I guess it would be reasonable to restrict domestic competitions to domestic cups and top-flight leagues. (I do not know how likely it is, but it is not unthinkable that some player in some very low competition scored 400 goals.) – Martin Jan 2 '17 at 8:15
  • There is also a Wikipedia article List of men's footballers with 500 or more goals. (However, it counts both goals scored for the national team and goals scored in club competitions.) – Martin Jun 29 '19 at 6:11
