And he is surely to make a new slice of history off the pitch too by taking his fifth crown – matching the tally of arch rival Lionel Messi.

Ronaldo uploaded a photo to his Instagram showing himself getting on a plane with trademark ‘CR7’ logo and a silhouette of him celebrating.

He even wore his new Air Force 1 CR7 trainers for the trip, complete with a golden swoosh and eye-catching white style.

He wrote alongside it: “Flying in style!”

The 32-year-old dad of four was joined on the flight by his mother Dolores and sister Katia Aveiro.

Mum Dolores even posted a selfie on her own Instagram with the caption: “Pronta para uma ida a Paris,’ which translates as “Ready for another trip to Paris”.

BAYERN MUNICH have zero interest in recalling Renato Sanches back from his nightmare loan spell at Swansea next month.

The 20-year-old Portuguese midfielder arrived in South Wales to huge fanfare in August as Paul Clement appeared to have pulled off quite the coup.

But the promising youngster has endured a horrible time of it at the Liberty Stadium and has been dropped to the bench in recent weeks.

Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes has no intention of bringing Sanches back to Bavaria next month.

He told Bild: “I assume that Hasan Salihamidzic [Sporting Director] talked to him on the phone.

“I’m surprised. I’m not worried about getting him back to Bayern.

“You also have to see if that makes sense. In midfield, we have no need.”

It is a nightmare situation for the man who won the Golden Boy award last year after helping Portugal to win Euro 2016.

Swansea are bottom of the table and face a trip to a rejuvenated Everton side this evening.

Sanches has only completed 90 minutes twice for the Swans in the Premier League and was completely left out of the squad for the win over West Brom and the defeat to Manchester City.

MANCHESTER CITY stars celebrated keeping up their hot start to the season, by going bowling.

Gabriel Jesus was joined by Ederson and Fernandinho after Pep Guardiola’s men thumped Tottenham 4-1 in the Premier League just 24 hours earlier.

Brazilian star Jesus appeared to be just as on target in the lanes as well as on the pitch this season too.

The City star – who’s scored 12 goals this term for club and country – took home the “golden pin”, showing off yet another victory.

Compatriot Fernandinho came in second as the City trio enjoyed their Sunday evening out at All Star Lanes in Manchester with a group of pals.

Wrapped-up warm to avoid the bitter chill Jesus strolled proudly outside the bowling alley sporting his golden pin, while laughing with his friends.

Following yet another big win, City appear to have one hand on the Premier League trophy already.

On the win, boss Guardiola revealed his side are so good, he wouldn’t have even made the starting XI in his prime.

HIT AND MISS Where are the top 50 teenagers in the world from 2007 now?

When asked if he could break into the current City team, the Spaniard revealed: “No way. Fernandinho is much, much better.”

But Guardiola is being realistic, quashing claims they could emulate Arsenal’s “Invincibles” season of 2003-04.
