Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t a frontrunner to win the 2021 Ballon d’Or, but his agent Jorge Mendes certainly believes he should be. The Man United star is among several candidates who could win the prestigious award, with the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Lionel Messi, and Jorginho competing for the ultimate prize. But as far as Mendez is concerned, it’s Ronaldo’s for the taking. Via France Football.
“The figures and statistics linked to the name of Cristiano Ronaldo speak for him and should be enough in my opinion for him to win another Ballon d’Or. The absolutely remarkable total of 115 goals for the Portuguese national team makes him the record holder in the history of men’s international football. This year he broke this 15-year-old record, to which he can add that to being the top scorer in the history of professional football."
