Tottenham forward Gareth Bale says Cristiano Ronaldo is a more ‘complete footballer’ than Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.

Tottenham forward Gareth Bale says Cristiano Ronaldo is a more ‘complete footballer’ than Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.

The in-form Spurs attacker, who is rumoured to be a transfer target for both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich this summer, has scored 13 Premier League goals so far this season.

Asked the question “Messi or Ronaldo?” by Life’s a Pitch, Bale revealed his admiration for Los Blancos’ star.

“For me, personally, I’d say Ronaldo,” the 23-year-old Welshman responded.

“He’s got the whole package. He’s strong, he’s powerful, he’s pacey, can head the ball, strike the ball. Obviously, you can’t say anything bad about Messi, but for the all-round complete footballer, I’d say Cristiano Ronaldo.”

The comments are likely to be taken as a welcome sign by Real Madrid that the Wales international would relish the chance to link up with Ronaldo.

According to reports, Los Merengues are expected to challenge Bayern for his signature at the end of the season in a move thought to potentially be worth around 50 million euros.

By then, Bayern will be managed by Messi’s former Barcelona coach, Pep Guardiola, who is said to also have a great interest in bringing Bale to the Bavarian outfit.

Mr Gareth Bale needs to learn one thing,he is not in Messi’s league and never will be,there is a very big differnce between him and Messi’s, has been top soccer player for the last 4 years were as he never will be,so his jugement means sweet nothing.

for me,Bale was saying the truth,cristiano is a powerful player only but he,s unlucky to win individual accolade. But remains a heart trick king.

love how the Messi fans are insulting Bale.

They’re right in that Bale is inferior to Messi, but Messi would be ashamed to see just how immature his supporters- as in the vast majority of them- act in his defense: disgraceful. Particularly as they go after Bale and not Ronaldo, and seeing as the point of Bale’s statement is that “Ronaldo is more complete” than Messi.

Gareth Bale is just saying the truth for what he has seen and notice .. He is not yet at his best form. I don’t find it very complicated because if only footballers may express their opinions, they would probably choose Cristiano Ronaldo as a complete footballer than the Catalan star. Cristiano is still the best even if unable to win those individual awards.

Wow! There are some dumb readers here. It’s a short article. Read it again and you may find that it is not about Bale compared to Messi. Besides, he was ASKED the question. Bale on RM would be awesome. The guy is as fast as they come and can control the ball at full speed. Plus, he’s young. He could turn out to be a real superstar! On last thing,…learn to type and spell. That may help your illiterate appearance.

Todd, they won’t listen. They’re too ignorant and dim-witted to do so. May sound mean, and offensive, but it’s the truth. All they do is insult everyone who doesn’t wear #10 for Barca.
