Gareth Bale says Ronaldo deserves Ballon d'Or but Maxwell thinks otherwise.

Los Blancos forward Gareth Bale believes Cristiano Ronaldo should win the Ballon d'Or award without a doubt.

Bale who joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2013, becoming the world's most expensive player reckons Ronaldo is ahead of Lionel Messi and German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in the race to become the Ballon d'Or winner.

Ronaldo was part of the team who won the 10th Champions League title for Madrid back in May, after Ancelotti's men won the Copa del Rey. They also won the Super Cup and the former Manchester United winger has started the season in flying colours continuing his form from last season.

And, Bale told Telefoot his team-mate "deserves to win the Ballon d'Or" again.

"Ronaldo was fantastic this year," the Welshman said. "He deserves to win the Ballon d'Or."

However, former Barcelona defender Maxwell belies Bale is wrong and said: "For me there is no discussion," said the Brazilian. "Messi is the best player in the world."
