Robertson: Mohamed Salah can emulate Messi and Ronaldo

Meanwhile, Liverpool star Mo Salah after a simply outstanding season is now the fifth most valuable in world football just behind the Argentinian legend.

Robertson believes his team-mate has reached a world class level by emulating the striking deeds of the true elite like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Cristiano Ronaldo's future remains in question, following his Champions League final insinuation that he won't be at Real Madrid next season. Cristiano Ronaldo is perhaps surprisingly down in 24th position valued at £90 million, which is still more than Real Madrid paid for him nearly a decade ago, but at 33 his best days are behind him.

Speaking to Marca from Spain's pre-World Cup camp, Asensio said that he "could not imagine" being part of a Madrid squad which did not include the five time Ballon d'Or victor.

However, recent reports suggest Salah might only miss Egypt's opening match of the tournament against Uruguay, and Robertson hopes to see his team mate showing off his talents in Russian Federation.

Coach Fernando Santos too wants his star man to enjoy his rest period before getting down to business in the World Cup, where Portugal have been drawn alongside Spain, Morocco and Iran.

Real Madrid are keen for their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo to stay faithful to the club but the player is unhappy with his current situation. "Those are the players I would pick out".

Salah is recovering from a shoulder injury he suffered in the Champions League final.

It meant that Ronaldo missed Portugal's two friendlies this week ahead of this summer's World Cup. But we also know what Neymar can bring. He is going to be a player who will be a big hero at Liverpool for a long time, I am totally convinced of that.
