Cristiano Ronaldo may be favored to win the Ballon D'Or, but the Portugal forward says he is not sure if he will attend the awards ceremony.


Take a stroll through CR7's career defining-moments.

The Real Madrid star told Europa Press agency ''there are still some days to go. I am still talking about it with the club and I will see if I go.''

Ronaldo was speaking at the opening of a museum in his honor on his home island of Madeira.

Ronaldo is having an outstanding year and is tipped to end Lionel Messi's four-year run of claiming the award and beat out fellow finalist Franck Ribery when the winner is announced on Jan. 13.

He says ''it is only a trophy, we'll see what happens.''

In October, FIFA President Sepp Blatter said he preferred Messi while making fun of Ronaldo's attitude and haircut.
