Ronaldo feels Neymar would be in the final three of the Ballon d'Or if he'd joined Real Madrid last season.

The Santos star is among the 23 nominations for the award.

"It is impossible to compare, but in my opinion if he (Neymar) had played all last year with the shirt of Real (Madrid) he would be in the 'top 3'," Ronaldo said on his Twitter account.

Former Real star Ronaldo is now acting as an advisor to Neymar.
