It's the first transfer window since both men began their illustrious soccer careers that they will both switch clubs together. Lionel Messi's departure at Barcelona after 21 years made that possible despite the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo has switched club four times and is currently improving the numbers for Manchester United.

Lionel Messi finds himself in a very unfamiliar territory even though there are a few familiar faces in Neymar Jr and his Argentina teammates. His performances so far shows he's not even close to adapting to the league.

Regardless of Lionel Messi's league form, PSG are top of the Ligue 1, 10 points clear and bar any extreme circumstances they will likely be crowned champions come May, regaining it from Lille. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored four Premier League goals in eight games but United are sixth and may not win the league.

If PSG wins Ligue 1 then Messi would have a league title other than La Liga in his career while Cristiano Ronaldo would have won the Premier League for a fourth time. Last season's Ligue 1 winner got €60m while the Premier League winner got €170m. A big difference exists and suggests Ronaldo will make more if Manchester United win the Premier League than Messi will make from winning Ligue 1.
