THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: City Drawn In Same Group with Messi’s PSG Hours After Ronaldo Reportedly Agrees Terms

Published

on

It is looking set for Ronaldo and Messi to rekindle their rivalry as Manchester City has been trickily drawn in the same group with PSG in the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League draw. RB Leipzig and Club Brugge are the two other teams drawn in group A.

ManCity were one of eight teams in Pot 1 for winning the premier league last season and PSG could not avoid the team that dumped them in the semi-final of Europe’s elites competition last season for only finishing as Ligue 1 runners-up the last term. Pep Guardiola’s men eliminated Parisians by 4-1 on aggregate last season.

However, with Messi’s big move this summer to PSG and potential Ronaldo returning to England to join Machester City, the football world is tantalized to witness yet another duel battle between the two of the greatest footballers and two of the fearest rivalries that have played the game.

The last time the two met last season, but Ronaldo missed out on the first leg for testing positive to Covid-19. The Portuguese later returned for the second leg fit and helped Juventus to thrash the french side 3-0 by scoring twice to top the group.

Messi joining PSG was the biggest news in the footballing world last month with Barcelona’s inability to continue to fund his wages due to financial bankruptcy. The PSG front at the start of the new season will parade the dreaded best of Messi, Neymar and likely Mbape if the french man doesn’t complete a potential move to Real Madrid before the closing of the transfer windows.

 Meanwhile, the five-times world best player Cristiano Ronaldo has been reported to have agreed on personal terms with Manchester City to make a sensational return to the premier league.
The report says Jorge Mendes had flown into Turin on Thursday to discourse the possibility of Ronaldo leaving Juventus after the agent had a talk with manager Pep Guardiola.

Ronaldo requested to be left out of Juventus’ starting XI for their Serie A opener with Udinese on Sunday and rumours was already flying in Italy that he had hinted teammates of a possible City move.

Ronaldo is set to earn in excess of £500,000 per week at the Etihad and Mancity are looking at the possibility of avoiding paying a transfer fee on him.

The Ronaldo chase began after the efforts to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane failed to pull through for City.

Ronaldo will be seen playing against his formal club Manchester United, and it waits to see how the red devil’s love for their legend plays out after.
