Messi denies 'competing' with Ronaldo for status

"It would be awful (if Neymar moved to Madrid) because of everything he means to Barcelona", Messi was quoted as saying by Argentina's TyC Sports.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - Barcelona star Lionel Messi says it would be "terrible" to see his friend and former teammate Neymar signing for Real Madrid. As a group, they work well, and they have great individuals. "It stimulates me to see them win leagues or to be in the Champions League final".

Alexander-Arnold has established himself as Liverpool's first-choice right-back following a breakthrough campaign at Anfield, and he will look to cap that with victory against Real Madrid in Kiev on May 26. However, an unfortunate injury cut short Neymar's season and he was left sidelined as Real Madrid beat PSG in the Champions League. I never set out to be the best, second best, third or fourth.

"What Mohammed Salah is doing is something that I am not surprised but am not surprise because he has demonstrated he can do it over the years", Kwadwo Asamoah on Atinka FM.

"I don't need to go to another team to show anything to anyone", Messi said.

'I want to win La Liga and the Champions League together'. "One watches other leagues, but at the time to decide, it's hard to leave Barcelona".

The two South Americans will be hoping to lead their respective countries to World Cup success in Russian Federation.

That defeat, coupled with similar failures in two Copa America finals, prompted the forward to suggest Argentina's senior players would have to retire from worldwide football if they fail in Russian Federation.
