Lionel Messi: Barcelona ace makes ‘healthy’ Cristiano Ronaldo claim, Ballon d’Or admission

Cristiano Ronaldo to be rested vs Atalanta Massimiliano Allegri confirms

Cristiano Ronaldo to be rested vs Atalanta Massimiliano Allegri confirms

The Argentine and Portuguese battled it out in La Liga for the better part of a decade after Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009.

"I would like him to come to Italy one day".

The disappointment does not seem to have affected Messi too much, however, as he continues to set the standard for the La Liga giants.

On the Ballon d'Or, five-time victor Messi admitted: "If I'm honest, I don't give much importance to it although it is a big prize".

The Barcelona ace said, "Accepting Ronaldo's challenge to join Italian football?"

Yet Ronaldo left Spain's top flight in the summer to embark on a new adventure with Juventus in Italy, completing an £88.8million move in July.

"My challenges are renewed year after year".

Meanwhile, Guardiola has ruled out returning to the Camp Nou as head coach and said his only route back home would be as a youth coach, training the stars of tomorrow at La Masia. I don't need to change team or league in order to find new objectives.

"I don't need a change".

Ronaldo finished second in the Ballon d'Or voting earlier this month but Messi was well down in fifth, outranked by Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann as well as victor Modric. The two established a Ballon d'Or duopoly between 2008 and 2017, winning the coveted award five times each.

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi could open a museum with the number of trophies he has won in his career to this point, including five Ballon d'Ors and five Golden Boots, but to him, family is more important than all of that.

Talking about post-Messi preparation, Cruyff said, "Better not to think yet because it's okay and keep doing it great".
