Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have a great rivalry given their status of the best soccer player of the last decade. They have been consistently the best around for more than 10 years. But maybe, the rivalry that was thought to be just professional, can be disputed on a personal level.
This is because the Portuguese asked Juventus to sign Messi's best friend and make him feel betrayed. Lio and this player have been friends since 2005, from when they played together in the Argentina youth team and won the U-20 World Cup. The friendship lasted, at least until today.
That player, of course, is Sergio Aguero. And CR7 wants him at Juve with the pretexts of replacing Alvaro Morata, who has been underperforming and upgrade Paulo Dybala, who would not renew his contract. If this happens, Messi would have few reasons to go to Manchester City, because his best friend would not be there.
And also, if this move happens, it would not be so sure whether Aguero will be still Messi's best friend. Surely Kun knows how much means the rivalry for Messi, and would not like to disappoint him. But Juventus is calling, and the Manchester City player will have to choose between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
