Brazil legend Ronaldo has heaped praise on PSG forward Kylian Mbappe, adding that he would have tempted the France international to join Real Valladolid if he had Real Madrid's spending power.


Mbappe, who scored 18 Ligue 1 goals in 20 appearances before the 2019-20 season came to an end, continues to be linked with a move away from Paris Saint-Germain, who have constantly said they are not willing to listen to offers for the Frenchman.


Ronaldo is a majority shareholder of Valladolid and is wishing they could secure Mbappe’s signature.

Speaking at a media event sponsored by Santander Bank, former Inter Milan and AC Milan striker Ronaldo said: "I would sign Mbappe [if Valladolid had Madrid's money], he is the one who most reminds me of me and my playing times."


Ronaldo also revealed his admiration for Erling Haaland but doesn’t think Madrid need the Borussia Dortmund frontman.

"Haaland is a great player, he is still young and has had a pretty good year with many goals, we will see how he ends it," he said.

"Surely big teams are going to be watching, but Real Madrid have good players, like Benzema who scores goals every Sunday."
