Cristiano Ronaldo building a museum dedicated to himself

Cristiano Ronaldo may have failed to win the Champions League and failed to beat Lionel Messi to the Ballon d'Or in the last four years, but he still has enough confidence about him.

Shortly after losing his title as the world's most expensive player to Gareth Bale, he signed a contract that put him at the summit of football once again - this time as the highest paid player in the world.

So much confidence - and money -  does the Portuguese international have, he has decided to fund the building of a museum dedicated to himself  in Funchal, Madeira, where he was born.

Portuguese source Diario de Noticias reports that Ronaldo has funded the project to be built in the port city and will display memorabilia, including Premier League and Champions League winners medals from his time at Manchester United and his La Liga medals from his time at Real Madrid.

It will also reportedly display his Ballon d'Or trophy from 2008.

A family source told the Lisbon daily newspaper: “The museum will be very important for the region because it will bring tourists from all over the world. Who would not want to see the Golden Ball and the Golden Boot, among many trophies that Ronaldo has already won?”

The museum won't be open until early 2014 by which time Ronaldo could have another major award to put on show.

He is currently one of the favourites to win a second Ballon d'Or but faces competition from Lionel Messi and Franck Ribery.

His current sledging match with Fifa won't help his cause, however.
