Cristiano Ronaldo has heaped praise on mega-rich PSG by saying that they can win the Champions League.

Quoted on, the Ballon d’Or winner said, "PSG will be a contender to win the Champions League."

The winger also fuelled rumours that he may one day make a move to the French club by saying, “maybe one day I'll be in France to live and to play - or maybe not, I have a contract with Real until I am 33. I hope to stay here, I'm very happy."

Indeed, there was intense speculation in the summer that Manchester United were going to bid for their former player, with even the number seven shirt being left vacant.

The Portuguese was sold by the Red Devils to Real Madrid for £80m in 2009, a world-record at the time before it was eclipsed by Gareth Bale’s £85m transfer to the Spanish giants.

Rio Ferdinand revealed that he had been in constant contact with the Portuguese star in an attempt to get him to return to Old Trafford.

The player also spoke of his happiness at winning a second Ballon d’Or, after a sensational 2013 season in which he scored 69 goals.

"Maybe people were surprised to see me cry [when I won]," he said, "but those who know me know that this is the real Cristiano. Someone honest.

"This is the reality, this is not the image that I give myself. It was natural. Having my son at my side, it was an incredible moment. It was one of the most beautiful nights of my life.

The player will be hoping to add to his single Champions League winners medal this season, his side face Schalke on the 26th February in the last-16 game.
