Lionel Messi has finally responded to Cristiano Ronaldo challenging him to leave Barcelona and sign for an Italian team.
According to MSN.COM, Ronaldo left Real Madrid after nine years in the summer, signing for Italian giants Juventus.
Ronaldo has challenged his Argentine counterpart to join him in the Serie A.
“I’d like him to come to Italy one day. I hope he accepts the challenge like me, but if he’s happy there then I respect that. Maybe he needs me more. For me, life is a challenge, I like it and I like to make people happy. He’s a fantastic player and a good guy, but I don’t miss anything here. This is my new life and I’m happy.”
Since leaving La Liga Ronaldo has been continually asked to discuss Messi – and vice versa – and earlier in the season set the Barcelona star a challenge.
Weeks later, Messi finally responded to the former Real Madrid star’s challenge in an interview .
The Barcelona ace said, “Accepting Ronaldo’s challenge to join Italian football? I don’t need any change.”
