Ronaldo has conquered the footballing world – breaking all goalscoring records since making a then world record move from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009.

The Portugal skipper won his fifth Ballon d’Or earlier this month to prove the world that he is one of the best players in footballing history.

But recent reports have claimed that Ronaldo is not happy with his current wage packet at Real Madrid.

Rivalries between footballers are often talked about and make the game even more interesting. Taking the present decade into consideration, the names that first hits our mind are Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona legend Lionel Messi. Their path-breaking performances, breaking records, setting new milestones and battling neck to neck for the prestigious Ballon d’Or award is what the fans love to see and debate about.

Ronaldo had put pen to paper on a new deal at Real Madrid last year, but his wage packet is less than his rival.
