Zlatan Ibrahimovic Of Los Angeles Galaxy Runs After A Pass In Front Picture Id1184275167?s=28

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has dabbled into the discussion of superiority between Ronaldo de Lima and Cristiano Ronaldo with the towering striker backing the Brazilian legend as the "real" one. 

The Swedish star is set for a move to Serie A at 38 after mutually parting ways with American side LA Galaxy with an impressive 53 goals in 58 appearances. 

Ibrahimovic, who is linked with Italian giants Bologna, has now aimed jibe at the Portuguese star, calling him a product of natural talents while describing the Selecao legend as the real Ronaldo. 

"We'll see each other: I will go to a team which must win again," Ibra told 'GQ Italia. 

"The real Ronaldo is Brazilian. I'm not going to find the true one in Italy. "Cristiano's talent refers to many years of work and it's not a natural talent," the Swedish star further stated. 

Ibrahimovic's public beef with Ronaldo dated to 2018 when he attacked Portuguese star after Croatian ace Lucas Modric beat him to Ballon d'or award. 

The 38-year-old striker has now complemented his beef with Ronaldo through a subtle jibe questioning the Portuguese star's move to Juventus.

Ronaldo left Real Madrid in 2018 after fallout with Los Blancos hierarchy for Juve. 

Zlatan, however, described the switch as a less challenging considering Juve's position in the European elites list. 

"He joined a side which have won Serie A seven times in a row," the former Barcelona star said. 

"Going to a club like that is not a challenge. He should have gone to Juventus when they were in Serie B to get them promoted."

Ronaldo was recently overlooked for 2019 Ballon d'Or award after the Barcelona superstar, his arch rival, was handed the individual award breaking the tie between him and the Argentine. 

But the same night, the Portuguese star was the biggest winner as he was crowned the Serie A Player of the Year.
