Lionel Messi once said he would like to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo’s future is up in the air at the moment. The Manchester United frontman wants to leave Old Trafford after just one season. According to various reports, he has asked his club to allow him to depart this summer if a suitable offer arrives.
The likes of Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Napoli are all possible contenders for CR7’s signature, although PSG are reportedly not an option at this moment.

Would Messi play in the same team as Ronaldo?
For many fans, Ronaldo and Messi becoming teammates is the dream. The players have rivaled each other for over a decade, competing for the greatest individual and club honors, but how would they feel being on the same team?
“Yes, of course,” said PSG star Messi when asked if he would play with Ronaldo during an interview in 2015.
“I always like to play with the best, and he is one of them. I think it will be difficult for us to play in the same team, but obviously I would like to.
“I was lucky enough to play and participate with many very good players and, obviously, I would also like to do it with him.”
Ronaldo is currently away from Manchester United for the club’s pre-season tour due to family reasons.
