Marcus Rashford has given his honest opinion on the Messi v Ronaldo debate

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will undoubtedly go down in history as two of the finest footballers to ever play the game.

The magnificent duo – who have each won five Ballon d’Or awards – are both in their thirties and are now entering the twilight years of their career.

Ronaldo is reportedly unhappy with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and could be heading for the exit door this summer.

The 33-year-old Portuguese forward, who is set to star at the 2018 World Cup, will have plenty of interested parties.

Manchester United might be interested in bringing Ronaldo back to Old Trafford but there is plenty of competition for attacking places.

Marcus Rashford exploded onto the scene as an 18-year-old under Louis van Gaal but has not fared so well under Jose Mourinho.

The 20-year-old England international spoke to CNN and weighed in on the Ronaldo v Messi debate

ALL TIME BEST PLAYER?

Rashford received a signed shirt with a personalised message from Ronaldo after Man United beat Spurs in the FA Cup semi-final in April.

Preparing for the World Cup, Rashford offered his honest opinion when asked who the best player of all-time is.

“I’d have to say Messi, some of the stuff that he does is unbelievable,” said Rashford to CNN.

“I’m a big fan of Ronaldo as well – but I think Messi is the greatest ever.”

Rashford has definitely just lost some brownie points with the Real Madrid legend.

After picking up the UEFA Player of the Year award in 2017, Ronaldo tipped the Man United youngster to follow in his footsteps.

Ronaldo said: “I see some [players] with great potential: Asensio, Mbappe, Neymar, Dembele, Hazard, Rashford… and some others. In the next generation there are at least 10 players with very, very great potential.”
