Cristiano Ronaldo could play at the highest level until he is 40 years of age, according to former team-mate Ryan Giggs, who reached that milestone for Manchester United.

Ronaldo made a €112 million (£98.5m/$131m) transfer to Juventus last summer and has since celebrated his 34th birthday. However, the record-breaking Portuguese forward is showing few signs of slowing down.

Ronaldo was a team-mate of Giggs in the Manchester United team when they won the 2008 Champions League under Sir Alex Ferguson on penalties against Chelsea in Moscow.

They were both back the following season but Barcelona under Pep Guardiola proved too strong for United.

Giggs admits that it’s impossible to plan for the talents of Lionel Messi and that the only thing United could do in both finals was try to restrict the number of times the Argentine received the ball.

Wales manager Giggs first tasted success in the 1999 final against Bayern Munich during a memorable season when United became one of only six teams to complete a treble.
