Ronaldo’s mother says Ronaldo jr are better than his father at his age. The 11-year-old left Juventus Academy to join United after his father made a sensational return to Old Trafford during the transfer window last summer.
For the first time in their careers, both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi changed clubs in the same summer in 2021.
Ronaldo has told Juventus he wants to leave just days before the transfer deadline. He completed an emotional return to Manchester United.
The Red Devils beat Manchester City by signing the Portuguese superstar. They rushed to bring him to Old Trafford after learning of his availability. It was the opposite for Messi, really, because Argentina did not want to leave Barcelona.
Although the Real Madrid-Barcelona feud is over and it’s been a few years, the pair are compared and contracted every season.
RONALDO VS MESSI 2021-22:
So far this season, Ronaldo is clearly ahead of Messi. The Man Utd man found the back of the net nine times in all three of Messi’s contests.
In league football, Ronaldo has scored four times, while Messi, incredibly, has yet to score in League 1. Admittedly, though, Argentina is struggling with injury issues.
In the Champions League, Messi scored three times in 2021/22, while Ronaldo took the lead with five.
Ronaldo could not have hoped for a better return to Manchester United as he scored two goals in his second debut for the club. Most notably at Old Trafford between 2003 and 2009.
After the international break, he was put straight into the starting line-up against Newcastle. He score his first goal through a close range hunting finish. While his second goal came into the net from the keeper’s arms.
