Ronaldo To Pair Up With Messi At Barca As Juve Can’t Pay His £28m Salary

Cristiano Ronaldo could very much likely play alongside Lionel Messi as the Portugal international has reportedly been offered to Barcelona in a sensational move.

The 35-year-old could be on his way out from Juventus, after two season with The Old Lady – who are trying to get his huge £28m-per-year salary off their books, according to Spanish journalist Guillem Balague.

He explained to the BBC that the Serie A champions are desperate to ship off the former Real Madrid talisman due to his astronomical wages that they have been offering him out to Europe's elite, including Barcelona.

He told 5 Live Sport: ‘’He's been offered everywhere, including Barcelona. I'm not sure if they can get rid of him easily with the kind of money he earns. Who is going to pay that kind of money?'’ 

Barcelona have been hit hard financially by the coronavirus pandemic and look unable to make big money signings during the summer period, as they hope to bridge the gap to LaLiga champions Real Madrid.

Whilst an attacking duo of Lionel Messi and Ronaldo has been a spectacle football fans have been crying out for since they both announced themselves on the world stage around 15 years ago, it looks incredibly unlikely to become a reality this summer.
