And after feeding the results through their supercomputer, they came out with the final conclusion that Lionel Messi is better than Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo's contract at Juve runs to 2022, and it would be a surprise if the striker hangs his boots before that.

Speaking to Portugal TV station TV1, Ronaldo said, 'I don't think about that (retirement).

Manchester United broke the world-record fee for a defender this summer when they signed Harry Maguire from Leicester City for £80m.

Asked how much he would be worth aged 25 in modern terms, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor replied: "It is hard to calculate".

However, with the exception of his compatriot Joao Felix, Ronaldo thinks players can now easily go for €100m without having to back it up with performances on the pitch.

"Today there is a lot of emphasis placed on potential and the football industry is different", he said to TVI. A central (defender) and a goalkeeper can be worth €70 or €80 million.

"I have an excellent professional relationship because we have been sharing the same moments for 15 years".

Money in football is spiralling out of control.

"I do not agree with it, but this is the world we live in. The gift is excellent and I have to continue to enjoy it".

Ronaldo finished as Juve's top scorer last season with 21 goals in the league as they ran clear of Napoli to claim their eighth successive title.

"It was terrible, but those who love me knew I was innocent", said Ronaldo.

"Are there any football players who have more records than me?" .

"It's not surprising that he and I are the only ones who have won five Golden Balls", admitted Ronaldo, adding that he is keen to win more.

The 34-year-old has enjoyed a glittering career, winning a joint-record five Ballon d'Ors as well as multiple trophies in England, Spain and Italy.

"I have no doubt that Messi has made me a better player and vice-versa".
