The Brazil international Neymar, who has taken the world of football by storm, has scored more goals than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo did at his age and is being further compared to the likes of Messi and Ronaldo.
As according to Marca, the Brazil international Neymar has scored 118 more goals than Ronaldo did at his age, while he has found the net one just more occasions than Messi did at 25 years old.
Even though the 25-year-old Neymar is ahead in goals, the unfortunately he is far behind what the Argentine ace Lionel Messi achieved collectively, as the Argentine had already won three Ballon d’Ors at his age, three UEFA Champions Leagues and five La Liga titles at his age.
And the 31-year-old Portuguese international, Cristiano Ronaldo, who won the 2016 European Championship with Portugal, had already won one Ballon d’Or and three Premier League titles at Neymar’s age.
So, we can say that Despite being ahead in goals, the Brazil international and FC Barcelona’s star forward Neymar is far behind what the five times and four times ballon d’Or Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo respectively has achieved collectively at Neymar’s age.
And Neymar is expected to be Messi’s successor at Barcelona, but looking at the 29-year-old Argentine ace Lionel Messi’s current form, the Brazilian might have to wait a few years more.
