Ronaldo isn't surprised to hear so many European clubs are chasing Internacional striker Leandro Damiao.

Damiao is the subject of intense interest from Manchester United and Tottenham, among several European heavyweights.

And ex-Real Madrid star Ronaldo says the youngster is the best he's seen since ... himself!

"He is tall, strong, and a great scorer, a threat in the air and a good shot with both feet. He will be important in (World Cup) 2014," said Ronaldo.
