Journalist Dean Jones believes two of the sport’s greatest-ever players could once again unite as opponents in America.
“Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi are destined to both play in the MLS before the end of their careers.” He said
Ronaldo,37, and Messi, 35 are undoubtedly at the tail ends of their careers but with both players currently representing Portugal and Argentina in the World Cup, respectively, it is clear that the pair still are capable of playing at the highest level.
However, with Messi’s contract at Paris Sait-Germain, which is set to come to an end next summer, ticking down and Ronaldo now being a free agent after leaving Manchester United through mutual agreement, both player’s futures are somewhat up in the air.
Speaking recently about where the two superstars could play next, and perhaps end their careers, journalist Dean Jones, has explained why he wouldn’t be surprised to see both stars turn out in America’s top flight.
“I think there’ll be a time when both Ronaldo and Messi are playing in MLS at the same time,” Jones told GiveMeSport.
“I’d be amazed if there wasn’t one season where they were up against each other in that league.”
“I know from speaking to people in America, that there has always been a desire to try and make it happen.” He added.
