The Real Valladolid owner was asked to name the top five players he enjoys watching today.
Ronaldo told AS: "Messi, of course, he is number one, it is a talent that we will take 20 or 30 years to see something similar.
"I also like Salah, Hazard, Neymar, that I love watching him play, of course Mbappe.
"It says a lot of people who look like me, has a lot of speed, finishes well, has great movements, hits excellent with both legs, has an incredible stride.
"We have similar things, but I never liked comparisons, especially between players of different generations, because the situations are different."
