Former Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo has challenged his counterpart Leo Messi for a new adventure in his professional career. Ronaldo who left Real Madrid for new challenges in Italy suggests his counterpart should do the same which would make the Serie A even more interesting. Both Ronaldo and Messi lost out to Luka Modric in the Ballon d’Or race this year.
Ronaldo’s start to his Juventus career has been pretty good so far as he has managed to score 10 goals in 15 Serie A games while also providing 5 assists. He is very happy with life in Turin.
Ronaldo’s best buddy Marcelo is often rumored for a move to Juventus. However, Ronaldo feels that it is just a media thing and he doesn’t pay much attention to it. Talking about a possible signing for Juventus, Ronaldo said:
“I see you write about James, Bale, Asensio but I’m honest, Juventus does not need other players. You must talk to the president.On the future, I do not know.”
However, Ronaldo insisted that he would always have open doors for Marcelo at Juventus.
“Marcelo is strong, we open the doors to good players and Marcelo is one of them.”
Ronaldo’s move to Serie A has brought an end to 9 years of La Liga rivalry between arguably the two best players ever, Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. However, Ronaldo feels that may be he misses Messi more than Messi misses him.
Talking about Leo Messi missing him in La Liga, Ronaldo said:
“No, maybe I miss him … I played in England, Spain, Italy, Portugal, in the national team, while he is still in Spain. Maybe he needs me more … For me, life is a challenge, I like it and I like to make people happy.”
“I would like him to come to Italy one day. Like me, accept the challenge. However, if he is happy there, I respect him: he is a fantastic player, a good guy but I do not miss anything here. This is my new life and I’m happy.”
So its over to Leo Messi to accept the challenge. May be Napoli, Roma or the Milan clubs would be looking to break the bank and reunite the Ronaldo Messi rivalry which will for sure make Serie A great again.
