'This Star Is On Messi & Ronaldo's Level!'

Juventus Stalwart Giorgio Chiellini believes a certain English star is on the same level as FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo.

‘English Star Is Football’s Most Complete Striker!’

England international Harry Kane has seen his performances get much praise over the last 18 months, and many believe that he has among the world’s elite, especially when it comes to his goal return.

In the build-up to Tuesday nights UEFA Champions League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and the Old Lady, Chiellini described Kane as an “Irreplaceable” striker and feels that there will be a host of clubs after his signature.

“Kane is now among the elite players in the world. Over the last years, with the goals he has scored, he has been on the level of the best,” Chiellini said, as quoted by The Sun.

“Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar — Kane has been on that level. He is one of those players that is irreplaceable - and I am sure that Tottenham will be doing all they can to make sure he stays.

“It is now a game where you cannot even guess at valuations anymore. There are maybe four or five teams who will pay whatever they need to pay to get the player.

“They are huge sums, but that is the world we now live in — when one of those four or five teams want a player, then they usually get them.

“He is their star player - but they are not where they are because of one player. They are strong in all positions but more than that they are organised and play for each other.

 “We know we are going to have to be at our best over the two games- but we are ready for the challenge.”

Ronaldo Extends Record Over Messi

The 24-year-old  has made 33 appearances for Spurs this season, scoring 32 goals and further assisting in three more.
