Speaking about his brush with Spanish tax authorities that charged him with evading the payment of €14.7 million in taxes between 2011 and 2014.

"When I started playing for Manchester United at 18, 19, because I was as good as the players who were there I realised: I'm close to achieving great things", Ronaldo told Portuguese broadcaster TVI.

'I don't think there are any footballers who have more records than me'.

Ronaldo denied the rape allegations from the outset, and his lawyer Peter Christiansen insisted that the sex was consensual. "To the contrary, the [agreement] stated in no uncertain terms that Mr. Ronaldo was agreeing to pay [Mayorga] a sum of money in order to maintain the confidentiality of their dispute".

In July, the Clark County District Attorney's Office said it would decline to prosecute the allegations against Ronaldo, citing they could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

Ronaldo is now gearing up for his second season with Juventus following his switch from Real Madrid.

At 34, he feels he still has a lot of "mileage" in his legs. I could end my career next year but I could also play until I'm 40 or 41.

I don't know. What I always say is to enjoy the moment.

Earlier, had reported how Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi named himself and rival, Cristiano Ronaldo, as the best players in the world.

He was also the Old Lady's top scorer in the champions league last season with six goals including a hattrick in the Round of 16 clash against Atletico Madrid.

These two players have won the Ballon D'Or award five times each and they have also lifted many trophies with their respective clubs.

If Ronaldo wins the Serie A Golden Boot known as the Capocannoniere, he will become the first player ever to win the Golden Boot in the top flights of England, Spain and Italy.

"There were better players than me: Giggs had more experience and was a better player than me at the time, Rio Ferdinand, Roy Keane, [Ole Gunnar] Solskjaer".
