Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo is history's greatest-ever athlete and is worth €1 billion, according to his agent, Jorge Mendes.

The Portugal international has scored a staggering 19 goals in 11 games in all competitions so far this season and is already the favourite to retain the Ballon d'Or prize for 2014, Goal reported.

Mendes - who claimed earlier this week that Ronaldo would retire at Madrid at the age of 40, despite rumours of a bid from Manchester United - believes his client will go down in history as the best sportsman the world has ever seen.

"In addition to being the best footballer in history, he is the greatest athlete of all time. You cannot compare him with anyone," he told AS.

"He is the best player in the biggest sport in the world, in which there is more competition than in any other. For that reason, he is the best sportsman in the world," he added.

When asked what Ronaldo is worth should any club attempt and audacious bid, Mendes replied: "The price that is stated in his release clause – €1bn."

Mendes also believes the Portugal captain will be able to break his own personal record of 60 goals in a single season provided he can stay fit in 2014-15.
