Super agent Jorge Mendes has hailed his superstar client Cristiano Ronaldo as the best footballer of all time by claiming the Portuguese legend will make history at Juventus. 

Since joining  Juventus from Real Madrid last summer, Cristiano Ronaldo has been in inspiring form. He has scored 19 goals in Serie A so far and has added a further four goals in Europe. This came after a relatively slow start to live in Italy.

Having suffered a 2-0 defeat in the first leg, Juventus needed to produce something special to get the better of Atletico Madrid. In the return leg, Cristiano Ronaldo took the game by the scruff of its neck and scored a hat-trick to seal Juventus' place in the quarter-finals. 

His three goals on Tuesday drew him level with Lionel Messi on a record eight Champions League hat-tricks, but Mendes insisted there has always been only one clear winner. 

"He is the best player in the history of the game and he proved it against Atletico Madrid," Mendes said to Gazzetta dello Sport of his client, as quoted by ​Goal.

The super-agent continued, "He is an alien, he made the difference in England and Spain and the same is happening in Italy. Without him, Real Madrid wouldn't have won that much, he was the leading light and he is the best player in the history of Real Madrid."

Mendes concluded by stating, "I am sure he will make the difference in Italy as well. He will make history at Juventus. Cristiano is epic, incredible, divine."

Ronaldo and Juventus will return to action in the Serie A when they travel to face Genoa on Sunday.
