JUST IN: Cristiano Ronaldo orders agent to get him Manchester United transfer

Friday’s FIFA World Cup clash between Portugal and Spain will be their fourth meeting at a major tournament this century going back to Euro 2004 when Cristiano Ronaldo was just starting out

But now, amid all that, Ronaldo's focus is on the World Cup, the one major honour still missing from his CV.

The Brazilian, who is widely considered to be one of the best strikers of all time, is often asked to weigh in on who he believes is the better player, Messi or Ronaldo.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will both be acutely aware that they have a golden opportunity to cement their status as the greatest footballer of all time over the next few weeks.

He leaves the ultimate result to the viewers' imaginations.

The 33-year-old will lock horns with six of his Real Madrid team-mates as the Spaniards attempt to shrug off the shock sacking of coach Julen Lopetegui following the announcement that he will take over at the Bernabeu next month.

It is a stretch to make Portugal one of the favourites to win the trophy, even with Ronaldo, but they are nevertheless in Russian Federation as the reigning European champions after surprising France on home soil two years ago.

Ronaldo is a player who needs to know that his peers consider him to be the best.

Not everybody will agree, but it's his honest opinion. "With his dribbles, his complete way of playing the game, he always generate surprise situation in attacks". "When I made Cristiano Ronaldo's portrait I got many positive comments and people were amazed", he said.

Ronaldo referred to Real Madrid in the past tense signalling that he could be on the move this summer. "At Manchester United it was already incredible the number of goals he was scoring but in Real Madrid he's become even more complete".

He helped Los Blancos make history in winning their third straight Champions League. Do you prefer the great dribbler, creator and goalscorer extraordinaire, Lionel Messi, or the relentless, physical specimen and goalscoring phenomenon that is Cristiano Ronaldo?
