The two players who have dominated world football for more than a decade are now in their mid thirties and may be on the verge of action. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have won enough European titles to fill all the mansions they chose to live in. But, soon, will the Asian trophy occupy a seat?
This is from the website World Game, Regarding the rumours and reports of Messi leaving Barcelona, Messi joined the Barcelona club as early as 2001. The club seems to have lost its way. The most recent humiliation against Bayern Munich 8-2 last weekend.
It seems that everything is over. No one can accuse Messi of wanting to leave, especially since it is reported that Ronald Koeman’s appointment as head coach is not encouraging. Especially for Ronaldo, with his social media empire and the fact that he has already played in the three major European leagues and has won a lot of money, it makes sense to move east.
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo – Now To Asia ?
It’s nice to see Ronaldo to the east. The 35-year-old is still very strong, but moving to Asia usually has fewer games. And Asia, where the pace is usually slower, may be exactly what he needs.
There is no doubt that both Ronaldo and Messi will be very expensive. But this is not as difficult as some people think. This may be someone who has a large corporate supporter who takes idols like Messi or Ronaldo and wearing a shirt with the firm name printed on it.
If any of these two go for Asia, there could be considerable interest outside of Asia. There will be tens of millions of fans ready to watch and follow their hero on TV and social media.
