The Real Madrid star has tipped stars from the likes of
Monaco, PSG and Manchester United to follow in his
illustrious footsteps and land top awards
Cristiano Ronaldo believes Kylian Mbappe, Neymar
and Marcus Rashford are among those who can follow
in his illustrious footsteps and dominate world football.
The Real Madrid superstar is current celebrating the
landing of another top personal prize, with the 32-year-
old named the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year for
2016-17 .

That gong has been added to an enviable collection
which already sees Ronaldo as the current holder of the
Ballon d’Or and FIFA’s Best award.
The Portugal international has been locked in
competition with Barcelona’s Lionel Messi for such prizes
over the past decade, but he acknowledges that there is
plenty of potential within the game ready to inherit
the most prestigious of crowns.
Asked by reporters to name his possible successors after
picking up his latest award, Ronaldo said: “That is a
very good question. I see some with great potential:
Asensio, Mbappé, Neymar, Dembele, Hazard, Rashford
... and some others. In the next generation there are at
least 10 players with very, very great potential.”
Marco Asensio has established himself as a player of
great promise alongside Ronaldo at Real Madrid, while
Chelsea star Eden Hazard is among those to have been
heavily linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu for
some time.
Manchester United forward Rashford has also drawn
links to Real, with the teenager’s potential having been
noted both inside and outside of Old Trafford.
Monaco sensation Mbappe could also end up in the
Spanish capital at some stage, amid talk of record-
breaking transfer deals , while Ousmane Dembele will
soon be turning out in La Liga as Barcelona close on a
move to make him the successor at Camp Nou to Paris
Saint-Germain forward Neymar.
The current market movement, along with that still to
come, is making the European game ever more
competitive at the very highest level.
Ronaldo, though, does not believe that there will be
any surprises in the 2017-18 Champions League as Real
once again seek to fend off the competition and secure a
third successive crown.
He added: “The teams are the same every year - Real,
Barca, Bayern, Paris, Juve.
“I do not expect any surprise this year. Four of these
teams will be in the semi-finals.”
A strong Premier League contingent will hope to have
something to say about that, with Hazard and
Rashford among those who will be hoping to lead an
English charge which also includes Tottenham,
Liverpool and Manchester City.
