Football fans around the world used to relish the intense rivalry between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo when they played in European leagues. However, this rivalry disappeared when both superstars left Europe. Recently, there has been a buzz online, sparked by a report from X (formerly known as Twitter), suggesting that we might see this rivalry rekindled.
Undoubtedly, Messi vs. Ronaldo is one of the most legendary rivalries in football history, and fans enjoyed watching these two icons compete for over a decade in Europe. Even after Cristiano Ronaldo moved to Al-Nassr and Lionel Messi joined PSG, they faced off in a friendly match earlier this year. Fans have been clamoring for more, and a recent revelation hints that their wishes might come true.
There’s a new twist this time. According to Ali Alabdallh, a writer for Al Bilad Daily, a Chinese international marketing firm is reportedly interested in hosting an All-Star friendly match between Inter Miami and Al-Nassr in China. What makes this even more exciting is that both Messi and Ronaldo, who are among the top players for their respective teams, would share the same stage once again.
