‘Come Prove Yourself In Italy’, Ronaldo Tells Messi

Cristiano Ronaldo says he hopes Lionel Messi “accepts the challenge like me” and leaves Spain to play in Serie A.

The 33-year-old joined Juventus in the summer for a fee in the region of £105m after nine years at Real Madrid, where he won two La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues.

Messi has spent his entire career at Barcelona but Ronaldo has now urged the Argentine to leave the Nou Camp and join him in Italy, suggesting the 31-year-old perhaps “needs” him.

“I’d like him to come to Italy one day. I hope he accepts the challenge like me, but if he’s happy there then I respect that,” Ronaldo told the media.

Asked if he missed Messi, Ronaldo replied: “No, maybe it’s him who misses me. I’ve played in England, Spain, Italy, Portugal and for my national team, while he’s still in Spain.

“Maybe he needs me more. For me, life is a challenge, I like it and I like to make people happy. He’s a fantastic player and a good guy, but I don’t miss anything here. This is my new life and I’m happy.

“I left my comfort zone and took on this challenge here in Turin, everything has gone well, I’ve proven I’m still an incredible player.”
