Recall that Ronaldo was shortlisted for the 2018 Ballon d’Or award last month.
Mendes said that he is confident Ronaldo will win this year’s Europe topflight individual prize.
Speaking in an event at the Web Summit on Tuesday, a tech event in Lisbon, Mendes was quoted by Theportugalnews as saying: “I hope Cristiano wins the Ballon d’Or and that next year he may win it again because he deserves it.
“When I took Ronaldo to England in 2003, it was something special; at that moment he opened the door to other young talents,” he added.
Ronaldo and Messi have both dominated the award in the past decade.
The pair had won an incredible five awards each in that time frame, with Ronaldo equalling Messi’s tally last year.
The 2018 Ballon d’ Or award will take place on December 3, 2018 in Paris.
