There has been a long debate going on for many years now about who is the best player in the world right now and, while there are a lot of people who claim that it is Barcelona wizard Lionel Messi, there are also those that feel Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the world.
Since joining Real Madrid from Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo has been scoring goals for fun breaking all sorts of records along the way. While it would be easy for a player of his talent to become complacent and begin to just coast by, that is not the case with Cristiano, especially over the course of the past few months or so.
Real Madrid signed Welsh star Gareth Bale from Tottenham Hotspur last Summer and while it has taken him a little bit of time to settle in, Gareth has been showing just how good he is in recent weeks, which has kept Cristiano Ronaldo on his toes. Gareth might not yet be as good as Cristiano but his obvious ability will make sure Ronaldo stays on his game.
Gareth Bale has been putting in some fantastic performances of late, which has led to many claiming that he could be as good as Cristiano Ronaldo. At the age of 24, Gareth Bale is five years younger that the 29-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo and there is a feeling that, once Ronaldo retires, Gareth will take over the mantle of being the best player in the world.
Do you think Gareth Bale has what it takes to be better than Cristiano Ronaldo?
