'Cristiano Ronaldo is not of this world', says awed Bruma

The Portugal starlet is honoured to be compared with the Seleccao skipper and reveals his pride to play alongside Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba at Galatasaray
Galatasaray youngster Bruma believes that Cristiano Ronaldo is "not of this world" and is flattered to be compared to the Real Madrid star.

The 18-year-old, who completed a move to Turkey during the closing stages of the transfer window, is eager to emulate the Portugal captain's achievements in future, having emerged through the same youth system at Sporting Lisbon.

"I think Cristiano Ronaldo is not of this world," he was quoted as saying by A Bola. "He's a completely different player. The comparisons made between us make me happy, I hope to be like him one day."

Bruma joined Galatasaray for €10 million (£8.5m) on a five-year deal shortly before the transfer deadline and the winger revealed that he is relishing the prospect of learning from established stars Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba.

"Sneijder and Drogba are very important players," he added. "I will have the opportunity to learn from them and be successful."

Bruma was one of the stars of the summer's Under-20s World Cup, where his Portugal side reached the round of 16 before losing to Ghana.
