Chelsea star Romelu Lukaku says he does not deserve to be compared with Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Both Lukaku and Ronaldo are back in the Premier League after spending time in the Serie A in the past few seasons.

Ronaldo pipped Lukaku to the Golden Boot award last campaign, but the Belgian striker got his hands on the league title with Inter MIilan and scooped the Serie A Player of the Year award.

"Don't ever compare me to Cristiano Ronaldo, never," Lukaku said at a press conference, as per Goal.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is, for me, in the top three best players in the history of football. I'm not going to rank him from first to third but he's in there.

"What he has achieved in football today for players of my generation is something exceptional.

"I was lucky enough to play against him in Italy and now that he's back in the Premier League, it's all good for English football.

"As for the rest, comparing statistics and all that, it's useless."

See where Ronaldo ranks among United's highest-paid players!
