Former AS Roma and Real Madrid star, Antonio Cassano has made a huge claim regarding Manchester United superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo - revealing that the Portugal icon is not among the top five players of all-time.

Having heard comments made Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes regarding his client's greatness and achievements in the sport, the Italian made his thoughts known about the five-time Ballon d'Or award winner.

"Yes, the best of all time after Napoleon Bonaparte. He's not even among the top five players of all time. [Lionel] Messi, Pele, [Diego] Maradona, [Johan] Cruyff and Ronaldo Nazario are on another level," he told BoboTV on Twitch.

The former playmaker also opened up on Borussia Dortmund starlet, Erling Haaland and his future - with his former club, Real Madrid being linked with signing the striker.

"They have told me be careful: Bayern [Munich] want to sign Haaland and that Real Madrid want [Robert] Lewandowski for a couple of years," he added.

The claim made by Cassano regarding Ronaldo will not go down well with his fans, considering that the 36-year-old has established himself as one of the greatest goalscorers in the game, courtesy of his exploits in front of goal - ever since making a name for himself in the Premier League.
