The rivalry between Ronaldo and Messi has created one of the most impressive displays in football history. Both have their own strengths and are great in their own way. Therefore, being paired with either of them is the dream of many players.
As for Kevin de Bruyne, the midfielder appeared excited at the prospect of playing with Ronaldo. During an exchange session, the Belgian player said, “I will probably choose to play with Ronaldo because he is an exemplary striker. Meanwhile, Messi is a playmaker. I am also a striker. Creative defender. So let me play next to a striker like Cr7.”
De Bruyne’s dream almost came true in the summer of 2021. As soon as Ronaldo was about to leave Juventus, Man City, not Manchester United, was the team determined to own the Portuguese striker’s signature. However, Ronaldo chose his old team at the last minute.

In the past, it was Sergio Aguero, and this season, it was Erling Haaland. The Belgian midfielder has also contributed to 150 goals in the Premier League with 58 goals and 82 assists.
This season also witnessed Messi’s impressive performance. The Argentine player continues to play an irreplaceable role in PSG’s attack, having 5 goals and 8 assists in all competitions. Meanwhile, Ronaldo has only had one shot into the opponent’s net since the beginning of the season.
