Cristiano Jr. has made headlines previously for his goal exploits and helping the Bianconeri's youth teams lift trophies.

Ronaldo's friend and former UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov has now revealed that the 36-year-old dreams of his son succeeding him one day but is worried Cristiano Jr. may not be as dedicated as he was.

"We talk many times, almost every day," Khabib told Russian YouTube star KraSava, as per Marca.

"But when we met we had a conversation about where we got our motivation from.

"He told me that he wants his son to be his successor. When Cristiano was a kid, he could only dream of having a simple pair of boots. But his son has everything.

"He fears that his son will not feel the same hunger, the same will. People are guided by that will. Feel the desire to achieve things. When you have everything, it's hard to find the right motivation."

Khabib himself has been offered a route into football, with Russian third division side FC Kamaz saying they have a contract offer ready for him to be signed.
