Ronaldo speaks on Neymar's transfer to Real Madrid

Ronaldo speaks on Neymar's transfer to Real Madrid

Messi told TyC Sports on Tuesday that "it would be bad, for all that Ney means to Barcelona".

The Portugal global has had a hand in Real Madrid's last three Champions League trophy wins.

Now that the 2017/18 season is basically over and the summer transfer window is approaching, rumours of Neymar leaving Paris Saint-Germain for Real Madrid are gathering pace.

In terms of the two players Liverpool are after in exchange, Navas would no doubt provide an upgrade over Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet - with the latter being tipped to move on this summer as the Reds eye a new long-term No.1.

Liverpool face off against Real Madrid in the Champions League final later this month, in a much-anticipated game.

Meanwhile Marcelo played in his 450th Real Madrid match over the weekend, as Los Blancos humbled Celta Vigo 6-0 despite the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo.

"It's not an objective to be the best in history". I never set out to be the best, second best, third or fourth.

"I don't need to go to another team to prove anything to anybody, "Messi said".

Madrid also survived scares in the Champions League knockouts against Juventus and Bayern Munich to reach another final, but Messi says its determination to battle through such ties should be commended.

Mohamed Salah has recently won the Premier League Player of the Season award as well as the Golden Boot after scoring 32 goals in 36 league games.

Salah will have another opportunity to exhibit his qualities at the highest stage as he is part of the Egypt squad that will play in the 2018 FIFA World Cup holding in Russian Federation. It will be a huge test for everyone and hopefully we come out on top.
