The Welshman has denied modelling his game after Ronaldo but has said he is flattered by the comparison. Bale has become one of the hottest young talents in European football this season thanks to a series of scintillating displays for the club and his country.
The 23-year-old midfielder has scored 23 goals in total this season, leading to speculation that Real Madrid have made him their number one transfer target for the summer.
"I think anybody would love to be mentioned alongside the best in the world," Bale said in an interview with Sport magazine, which is out on Friday.
"It's flattering, but I don't really look too much into it. I don't get the newspapers or read too many reports, so I don't really know how much hype there is. Obviously my friends tell me things, but I just treat every day as normal and focus on my job.
"I don't model my game on Ronaldo's. I have my own way of playing and it's not exactly the same but we do have similar attributes. I just like watching the best players: seeing Messi and Ronaldo. I've watched Ronaldo in the past and you do take things from other people's games to try to improve as a player, which I have - hopefully."
Bale and his Spurs face a huge test of their Champions League credentials this weekend when they face Arsenal at White Hart Lane.
