Manchester City ace Kevin de Bruyne admits he's happy being compared with the world's best.
And the Belgian said: "What I think of being compared to Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo? It's fantastic. It is obviously flattering to be compared to players who have been at this level for so many years.
"I have been evolving at this level for only two years, I am younger. I also think it's hard to compare myself to wingers, scorers, because I play in the middle and sometimes even in defensive midfield."
