Following the Portugal captain's move from Real Madrid to Juventus in 2018, his eldest son Cristiano Jr. joined up with the Turin club's youth academy, and has been in fine goalscoring form ever since.

The youngster scored four times on his youth debut for the Bianconeri last year and, according to Football Talent Scout, has scored 58 goals and recorded a further 18 assists in just 28 appearances for the club's U9 side this season.

Ronaldo commented on his Cristiano Jr's development last year when he made his debut, and revealed that the budding talent hopes to surpass the level he has achieved in his own career.

"I hope that Cris, my son, can be like his dad. He says he is going to be better (than me), but I think it's difficult," Ronaldo told DAZN, as reported by the Daily Mirror.

"I am very happy to have scored, for him too. He is playing for Juventus and adapting really well, it has been easier for him than for me."
