Ronaldo's leaked new boots hints Ballon d'Or victory

Ronaldo's leaked new boots hints Ballon d'Or victory”

However, the fact that Ronaldo and Real took home the lion's share of the key silverware in 2017, and Messi's Barcelona largely came off second best, means it is the Portuguese star who is likely to be crowned Ballon d'Or victor again this year. And sportswear giants Nike have implied he will with two new sets of boots with his branding.

One set of boots - the Mercurial Superfly V Quinto Triunfo CR7 - even reads "fifth triumph" when translated from Portuguese.

Messi and Ronaldo will find out who is crowned 2017's Ballon d'Or victor on Thursday in a ceremony which will be hosted in France.

Ronaldo himself announced the release of his own Air Force 1 CR7 trainers - following the same white/gold colour scheme.

He will reportedly receive it atop the Eiffel Tower.

'Ronaldo is one of our great symbols, ' he told an assembly of Madrid members.

Ronaldo, who has scored just twice in 10 league games this term for Los Blancos, will be up against Barcelona star Lionel Messi at Thursday's ceremony.

Despite Ronnie preparing to take all the plaudits, Messi's Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde insists prizes do not concern him.

He said: 'I don't value any prize at all. Everyone is free to give prizes that they believe are convenient to the players.

Kaka was the last player other than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to take home the Ballon d'Or, and the Brazilian playmaker won the coveted awarded way back in 2007.

"At the moment the ball is not willing to go in, but as I said before, this is football and sometimes the ball doesn't want to get in the goal, but there's still time left until the end and he will score way more as usual. I'd rather not to evaluate any of them".
