Portugal’s mega star, Cristiano Ronaldo, claimed he would be very happy if his eternal rival, Lionel Messi, also took part in a career in the Italian Serie A as he did this season. According to Ronaldo, it would be a great thing, but still gave flattery to the Barcelona star.
As is known, Cristiano Ronaldo decided to leave Real Madrid in the summer transfer window, and he chose to join the Italian Serie A giants, Juventus, after reaching an agreement worth 112 million Euros between these two sides. For Ronaldo, it was his first experience of a career in Serie A Italy, known as the most difficult league for strikers.
Sure enough, Ronaldo does seem to have a little difficulty adapting to Italian football, though he has scored 10 goals in 15 appearances at the Italian Serie A this season. For Juventus, Ronaldo’s arrival was very important to fulfill their ambitions, on the contrary for Real Madrid, especially La Liga, they lost an iconic figure in the past decade.
Ronaldo’s departure also made the popularity of El Clasico fade, given the thick rivalry between the Portuguese star and Lionel Messi. Messi himself decided to stay at Barcelona, then whether at this time the rivalry between these two players will continue in Italy? According to Ronaldo, it would be very great if Messi also played in Italy with him.
“It would be great if Messi would come to Italy one day for a career. He is a fantastic player and a good man,” Ronaldo hoped.
Ronaldo failed to win the Ballon d’Or award this year, which made him concerned, but he still congratulated Modric for winning the award.
“I think I deserve it. I have done everything on the field, the numbers presented do not lie. But this is not the end of the world. I respected the decision and congratulated Modric. Disappointed? Of course, but life goes on and I will work hard to win it next year!” said by the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner.
