Lionel Messi has reacted to the fact that he won’t have any problem passing the ball to Cristiano Ronaldo if the Juventus man happens to join Barcelona this summer.
Recall Spanish football expert, Guillem Balague had earlier claimed in the week that the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has in his name out there with Barca amongst those contacted.
Spanish Mundo Deportivo, quoted the former World footballer of the year as suggesting that he would pass to the Portuguese superstar if they played on the same team.
Recall Messi and Ronaldo have had a heated rivalry lasting over a decade on the field.
When asked if he would pass to the former Real Madrid goal king, Messi said he would eventually do so.
He said, “I guess so, in the end, yes,” as quoted by a Spanish newspaper, Mundo Deportivo.
Following their unprecedented elimination from the Champions League by Lyon, Ronaldo’s future at Juventus has been cast in doubt.
However, Ronaldo, whose contract expires in 2022, has been heavily linked with a move to French Champions, PSG.
