Cristiano Ronaldo: Manchester United did not want Real Madrid star this summer

Xavi has said Cristiano Ronaldo cannot be compared to ex Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi

We're still talking about a 24-year-old, so there's still much more to come from him. Ronaldo remains one of the world's best players and the face of arguably the world's best team―selling him now would be bad business by Los Blancos.

Kane has won back-to-back Premier League Golden Boots and took his worldwide tally to 10 goals in 20 games by scoring a brace against Malta on Friday night.

'I was speaking to Spain's coach Julen Lopetegui recently and he told me how lucky I was to have Harry, ' said the England manager when asked about Kane, who averages a goal every other game at worldwide level.

But according to the Times' Duncan Castles, Perez was open to selling Ronaldo when it appeared Madrid were on the verge of signing Kylian Mbappe, only to rule out a move after the Frenchman, in the interest of receiving more game time, set his sights on joining Paris Saint Germain instead. Messi was way out in front on 203. "Why can't that happen moving forward?"

I have every trust in Harry. You've got to have that drive and belief, and that's what he's got. "Alan [Shearer] was 25 when he was top scorer in Euro 96".

And yet despite Kane's brilliance, and the fact that Spain would love to have him, Southgate admitted that England could not dream of comparing themselves with Lopetegui's side.

"We've got (Jermain) Defoe and (Daniel) Sturridge on there, so we've got some real quality and people who can make an impact".

The Brazilian right-back has come up against the Real Madrid star on several occasions in his career through his time at Barcelona and Juventus, most recently in last season's Champions League final. "So the big worldwide experience is coming from club football as well".
