Messi fires back at Ronaldo over challenge to play in Italy

Jordi Cruyff, son of the late Johan Cruyff and manager of Chongqing Dangdai Lifan, believes that Real's drop in form is something the Catalan club could also experience one day if Messi moves on or retires from football.

"Accepting Ronaldo's challenge to join Italian football?"

"I heard the nominees for the Ballon d'Or and I knew I would not be in the fight, ".

Messi, in an interview with Marca, has insisted he does not need to change.

Jordi Cruyff told Barcelona to learn from what happened at Real Madrid after Cristiano Ronaldo's departure.

Ronaldo said: 'I played in England, Spain, Italy, Portugal, in the national team, while he is still in Spain. The game will mark the first time Ronaldo has not begun a Serie A game since he joined Juventus in the summer.

"I don't need to change anything", Messi said. My challenges are renewed year after year.

"It would be hard", Messi, 31, told Marca when asked about the idea of the Brazil global returning to Barca.

However, Messi did seem nostalgic when referring to his rivalry with Ronaldo in Spain's top league as "very nice", perhaps hinting that Ronaldo was right to say he missed his former sparring partner. I do not need to change teams or leagues to set new goals.

Messi also expressed his desire to lift the Champions League trophy for a fifth time to go alongside the five Golden Shoe and five Ballon d'Or awards he has won in his illustrious career.

The seven-time European champions have now failed to score in four consecutive league games for the first time since 1984, managing three goalless stalemates in the process.

"It was very healthy and it was handsome for the viewer", said Lionel Messi.
