He's upped his hat-trick (and indeed four- and five-goal haul) game since, though, and now bagged a barely believable 44 of them for Real Madrid - plus five on the worldwide stage.

However, upon receiving the award the Portugal worldwide gave a speech where he claimed he is the best player in the world "because he believes it is true".

This latest news is now expected to put Neymar in a confused status of mind as Brazilian legend Ronaldo Delima last week advised him to join Real Madrid.

While the media had been fawning over Messi's exploits, scoring against Chelsea for the first time, stroking home three free kicks in three consecutive games and so on, Ronaldo has been quietly scoring an outrageous amount of goals this year.

While the 33-year-old did struggle at the start of the season, scoring only four goals in his first 19 appearances, things have certainly changed since then.

Ronaldo has scored at least one goal in his last eight matches.

"If he has a penalty in training, he will take it with the maximum concentration".

Putin easily wins another term as Russian president
As the embodiment of Russia's resurgent power on the world stage, Putin commands huge loyalty among Russians. Asked after his re-election if he would run for yet another term in the future, Putin laughed off the idea.


Ronaldo hasn't won the award since 2015, when he had 48. To think that he has taken just 50 games to score more than 150 goals is truly remarkable. The teams meet again in May at Camp Nou.

The Frenchman is under severe pressure at the Bernabeu given the champions' league position, and they are unlikely to catch Barcelona with just 10 games to play.

Varane, 24, was speaking before the Champions League draw on Friday in Nyon, and the France global said that he is surprised when people suggest that Ronaldo is past his best.

In total, Ronaldo has scored 566 club goals.

Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo overtook Lionel Messi's goal tally for the season on Sunday with his incredible four-goal haul, and Zinedine Zidane has now revealed something the Real Madrid talisman does in training! "We scored some spectacular goals that came from the whole team".

According to reports in Spain on Monday, Ronaldo's legal team made a settlement offer of €3.8 million (A$6 million), plus admission of wrongdoing, which was rejected by the country's tax authorities.
