Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has picked Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo over FC Barcelona captain Lionel Messi.

Ronaldo and Messi are considered to be two of the greatest footballers of all time, and who between these two is the better player is a question that has been doing the rounds for a very long time.

Ronaldo, 36, and Messi, 33, have been at the top of the footballing world for more than a decade now, and they are still among the best in the business. The Portuguese attacker plays for Juventus and has arguably been their best player this season, having already scored 25 times across all competitions. Messi has also been superb for Barcelona, and the Argentine has 21 goals for the Catalan outfit this season.

Mount, who has emerged as one of the standout Chelsea performers this season, was asked by Harry Pinero to rank Ronaldo, Messi and his club team-mate Tammy Abraham. The 22-year-old Blues midfielder ranked Ronaldo above Messi while Abraham came third. 

"You know what, between Ronaldo and Messi, there's not much in it," Mount told the UMM YouTube Channel in the latest episode of 'In That Order' [via GiveMeSport]. "But I'd probably go... Ronaldo, Messi, then I don't know, I can't remember the last name."
