Ronaldo faces Messi on Saudi soil

English media, including the newspaper "Mirror" revealed that the Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, moved two days ago to the Saudi club Al-Nassr in a record deal, may renew the confrontation of his traditional rival Argentine Lionel Messi newly crowned with his country world champions.

The "Mirror" said that the confrontation will be through a friendly match for the French team Paris Saint-Germain in Saudi Arabia against a team of stars of the Saudi teams Al-Hilal and Al-Nasr, and it is highly expected that Ronaldo will be one of the names that will be included in the "Al-Nasr and Al-Hilal" team, in exchange for Messi, who will lead the Paris Saint-Germain team.

Messi remained absent from Saint-Germain throughout the last period, and will join him within days after the expiration of the short vacation period that he received after the hard and exhausting participation for a whole month in the World Cup Qatar, which concluded on 18 January to achieve the World Cup, after beating the French team in the final.

The newspaper said that the match will be part of the "Riyadh Season Cup", a friendly tournament, as the date has not yet been set, while reports speak of the current 19. It is expected that if the match is held, the confrontation between Messi and Ronaldo will witness record views, whether on the field, or through international television screens, given the record fame of the two global stars in the world, knowing that Ronaldo is considered the most followed in the world on various social networking sites, with about 770 million followers, and Messi with more than 400 million followers on Instagram only.
