The PSG winger has revealed what he thinks Cristiano Ronaldo feels about Lionel Messi’s move to France and who is his GOAT.

Angel Di Maria has suggested Cristiano Ronaldo envies Lionel Messi for joining Paris Saint-Germain while proclaiming his fellow Argentine as the greatest of all time.

Since Messi’s shock move to PSG, Ronaldo has been tipped to follow the former Barcelona man to France. There have been rumors claiming he could replace Kylian Mbappe, who is out of contract next summer. Real Madrid are reportedly keen to sign the World Cup winner.

Now Di Maria reckons Ronaldo rues the fact he isn’t at PSG, who arguably have one of the best squads in Europe if not the very best.

“Cristiano must want to kill himself for not being here,” he told TyCSports. “The quality and quantity of players that PSG have now is something unique.

“It doesn’t happen often in clubs, and the great players always want to be with the best. Cristiano surely wants to be here, but they signed Messi and luckily, it’s better this way.”

Aside from Messi, PSG have also signed players such as Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Gianluigi Donnarumma this summer.

Di Maria chooses Messi as the GOAT

The 33-year-old is one of 21 players to have played in the same team as both Ronaldo and Messi, whom he rates as the greatest of all time.

Di Maria spent four years with CR7 at Real Madrid between 2010-2014. He has played alongside Messi for the Argentina national team for the last 13 years and will link up with him once again at PSG.

“Messi is from another world,” Di Maria said about his new PSG teammate.

“You throw a stone at him and he stops it as nothing has happened. I’ve never seen anything like it.

“I’ve played with Ronaldo, Neymar, Mbappe, Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Karim Benzema, and Gareth Bale. And honestly, I’ve never seen anything like him.

“He is something unique.”
