Lionel Messi Asked If He Would Pass To Cristiano Ronaldo If They Played Together
The 33-year-old Barcelona captain has had a heated rivalry with Juventus superstar Ronaldo on the field.
When Messi was asked if he would pass to the 35-year-old Portuguese superstar, he admitted that he would eventually do so.
"I guess so, in the end, yes," he told Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo.
Ronaldo's Juventus future has been cast in doubt recently and he has been linked with a move to French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star won Serie A with the Italian side last season, but he watched as Juventus crashed out of the Champions League last week.
Ronaldo, whose Juventus contract expires in 2022, has even been linked with Barcelona in a shocking report.

Messi has previously praised Ronaldo on his performances for Juventus and called him a "predatory striker."
The six-time Ballon d'Or winner said: "It's normal that he continues to score, he is a predatory striker, he loves to score, any day he plays he will score.
"He has many good attributes as a forward and at the minimum he converts."
Despite his competitive rivalry with Messi, Ronaldo has brushed aside the idea that the two superstars share any bad blood.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner praised their competitive rivalry and admitted that he would love to have dinner with Messi someday.
Ronaldo said ahead of the Champions League draw last August: "We have shared the stage 15 years. I don't know if that's happened before -- the same two guys on the same stage all the time.
"Of course, we have a good relationship. We haven't had dinner together yet, but I hope in the future.
"We had that battle in Spain. I pushed him and he pushed me as well. So it's good to be part of the history of football."
