The superstars of the century, the two included in the ‘New World’, and the rivals of the century. Lionel Messi (Paris Saint-Germain) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr).
The two players have dominated world football for the past 10 years, reigning as the best players in the world. Because these two players were so great, many soccer fans imagined the two players playing in the same team. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen in reality.
But two years ago, that is, in 2021, this imaginary scene almost became a reality. At the time, Messi said her goodbyes to Barcelona, where she put everything she had. And he changed into the uniform of French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
At this time, there was a club that wanted to sign Messi along with Paris Saint-Germain. It was Manchester United of England.
Britain’s ‘The Sun’ reported that “Man United have been found to have been in contact with Messi, who left Barcelona two years ago.”
It was Jorge Messi, Messi’s father and agent, who led the negotiations. The media said, “Man United contacted Messi and expressed interest in bringing Messi to England. In fact, Jorge Messi started negotiations, and Man United accepted it positively. But in the end, Messi chose Paris Saint-Germain.” Explained. 스포츠토토
Messi is expected to make another transfer at the end of this season. His contract with Paris Saint-Germain is over, and negotiations for a new contract are sluggish. In addition, the observation that Messi and Paris Saint-Germain will part ways is dominant as recent dissonances such as unauthorized departure from training and disciplinary actions have been steadily coming out.
The media claimed, “Messi will leave Paris Saint-Germain, and once Manchester United’s takeover is finalized, Messi can try again.”
If Messi wore a Manchester United uniform in 2021, he could have played in the same team as Ronaldo. Ronaldo also left Juventus in 2021 and wore a Manchester United uniform. As Messi chose Paris Saint-Germain, the last chance to see the Messi-Ronaldo combination flew like that.
