Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed which players are his four biggest rivals.

Tired of reading? Click through the mini-gallery above to see which players Ronaldo listed as his toughest rivals.

The Portuguese recently sat down with ESPN for an exclusive interview, and was asked which player or players helped him to become the best he can be.

Ronaldo did not just mention only Messi, arguably his biggest rival, but also three others who compete at his level.

"To mention one (player) is hard, but the level that I am is like in other sports: Formula One, NBA... The best players always follow the best players," he told ESPN.

"They want to be in the top of the game because the other ones are there. You cannot rest, because the other ones will pass you.

"Of course, we fight with everyone, with Neymar, with Messi, (Robert) Lewandowski, (Gonzalo) Higuain, with the best players in the world.

"This is not 'fighting' but it's healthy. We fight to be the best. It's my motivation: to be better than them, year after year."

He did not specify that they are the top four rivals in his career, he only gave four names to elaborate his point. We know that higuain cannot feature there.
