While the world is anticipating seeing Ronaldo and Messi together, a shocking demand by the Argentine has shaken the entire footballing world.
Messi threatens PSG president
According to a report by El Nacional, PSG’s star Lionel Messi has threatened the Club president. The report claims that the Argentine is entirely against the move of Ronaldo to PSG.
Earlier it was revealed that Neymar Junior of PSG was set to leave the club this summer. In such a situation, it would have been perfect for the club to sign Cristiano Ronaldo. But Lionel Messi has other ideas on his mind.
Although none of the reasons mentioned by Lionel Messi is known. It has been established that the 35-year-old would leave the club if they signed Ronaldo.
Messi and Ronaldo have been tied in a fierce rivalry for the past decade. There have been moments when the players have come close. But the tension between the two sets of stars is palpable. Perhaps Lionel Messi wants to maintain that rivalry. Hence, has threatened Al-Khelaifi not to sign Cristiano Ronaldo.
Messi’s stay at PSG
The little magician has not had a pleasant stay at PSG. Messi was bought by the Paris-based club last year as a free agent. His addition to the squad was seen as a boost and set PSG en route to their maiden Champions League title.
However, the magical chemistry between Mbappe, Messi, and Neymar didn’t work out. As a result, PSG was thrashed out of the Champions League in the Round of 16.
Compared to his opposite number Ronaldo, Messi did win a trophy with PSG. But his performance was below expectation.
Hence, Ronaldo’s move to PSG can strengthen their attack. With the world’s best players playing at either plank, PSG can do wonders.
Ronaldo in the transfer market
On the other hand, Ronaldo has been desperate to move out of Manchester United.
The Portuguese attacker joined United from Juventus last year on a 2-year contract. But his interests have wavered since his side failed to secure a place in the Champions League.
Remember, Ronaldo is yet to miss a Champions League appearance since his debut. Therefore, to maintain his amazing streak, the player is looking for clubs that suit his need.
His agent, Jorge Mendes, has offered the player to several clubs like Bayern and Chelsea. And is yet to receive any concrete answer from either of them.
The above report is only a speculation of what things have taken place. And there is still a huge chance of Ronaldo and PSG, as well as Messi reaching a term. Maybe we can get to see the two of the best players in football play together.
