The ideal marriage could become a reality! According to a report in AS, the best footballers of all time – Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi – could play together at Camp Nou in Barcelona. That is exactly what Barcelona’s newly elected President, Joan Laporta, desires. Laporta wants to sign Ronaldo, but the finances must be worked out first, as Ronaldo will not come cheap.
Meanwhile, since their early exit from the Champions League, there has been much speculation about Ronaldo and Messi leaving their respective clubs. While Ronaldo has been linked to both Manchester United and PSG, Messi has also been linked to both PSG and Manchester City.
It’ll be interesting to see what the future holds for the two modern legends. Furthermore, Messi’s contract at the Camp Nou is set to expire at the end of the month, and he has yet to sign a new contract with the club. Ronaldo’s contract with Juventus, on the other hand, expires next season.
Both football legends are currently on national duty. While Ronaldo is representing Portugal in the Euro 2020, Messi is representing Argentina in the Copa America 2021. Both players have been in excellent form and have contributed to their respective teams’ victories.
