The Portugal icon has been selected as part of three players Nike have chosen to celebrate for both their speed and their achievements while donning Mercurials.

The 'Dream Speed' line designs are set to be worn exclusively by Ronaldo, Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe, and Australia's Sam Kerr.

In a post shared on Twitter, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner wrote: "I’ve achieved so much wearing Mercurial boots. Now, I am excited to see you all follow your dreams in my new #Mercurial Dream Speed."

Ronaldo has been signed by Nike since 2003 and has worn over half-a-century of Mercurial boots so far in his career that have followed him from Manchester to Madrid, and onto Turin.

The American footwear giant will run the Dream Speed series for several seasons, with the first installment coming in a bold Blue and Metallic Silver.

Nike claim: "The Superfly has always had a close fit for high-speed play, but now stronger, softer Flyknit wraps your foot more securely and more comfortably. It's also lighter for a crazy-fast feeling.

"Stronger Flyknit uses less material, which means your foot is closer to the ball. An ultra-thin finish gives you consistent touch in any condition.

"Your forefoot flexes when you run. The new Nike Aerotrak plate helps turn that into speed by snapping back into place after every step for a fast, springy feeling."

Nike first launched the Mercurial range in 1998, with Brazilian star Ronaldo the poster boy.

Ronaldo then became the first player to have his own signature Mercurial shoe – the R9 – recently relaunched as the Mercurial Puro Fenomeno, now worn by PSG's £198million star Neymar.
