Mendes: Ronaldo has improved Juve

Jorge Mendes believes Cristiano Ronaldo has ‘improved Juventus a lot’ and will win this year’s Ballon d’Or.

Ronaldo has started hitting form for Juve since his €112m arrival from Madrid, who in turn have struggled badly in their first season without the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

“I think Ronaldo will win the Ballon d’Or this year,” the super-agent said at an event in Lisbon.

“He’s doing really well, he’s the best of this generation and in the history of football.

“In my opinion, it’s enough to see what Real Madrid were before and what they are now, without Cristiano.

“The same can be said of Juventus, who have improved a lot.”
