'Ronaldo Is Maybe The Best Ever'

One of the hottest prospects in Europe, who has been compared to Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, believes the five-time Ballon d’Or winner could be the greatest player of all time.

Alves Responds To Angry Messi's Copa Claims

New Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix has been called the “next Ronaldo”, with many believing the 19-year-old is the best youngster to come out of Portugal since the Real Madrid record goalscorer.

The former Benfica man, however, does not welcome the comparisons, although he does feel Ronaldo might just be the best player in football history.

"We all know that Cristiano Ronaldo is a great player," he said, according to the Daily Star.

"He's the best in the world now and maybe the best ever. When we play with Portugal he does speak about Madrid.

"He spent a great part of his life here and he does speak about it quite a lot and about how much he liked it.

"But I'm here to make my own history and be remembered as Joao Felix. Of course it is a great comparison, but Cristiano is Cristiano and I want to be myself."

Stars Who Left Their Clubs On Bad Terms

Felix joined Atletico in this window for a fee of around £113 million (R1.9 billion), which is the most expensive transfer ahead of next season so far.
