Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo continue to dominate the headlines. The Argentine only moved to Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer a few hours ago. After that, Lille star Jose Fonte announced that he had invited CR7 to also move to Ligue 1 and join him at Stade Pierre Mauroy.

The center-back was quoted as said:

“I feel great because it is incredible to hear a player like Lionel Messi in French football in our league. It is exciting. Of course, it will be even more difficult for us in relation to the competitors, but we are facing a challenge – I text Cristiano every day to come to Lille! He just replied ‘ha ha ha’. “

It is worth noting that Jose Fonte and Cristiano Ronaldo have a good relationship. The two share a dressing room in the Portuguese national team and have both been selected to represent their country at the European Championships this summer. Portugal reached the round of 16 of the competition, Ronaldo was the top scorer of the tournament with five goals and one assist.

Lionel Messi has meanwhile been announced as a Paris Saint-Germain player on a free transfer. The Argentine has signed a two-year deal with the French giants that will bring him a whopping 35 million euros net per year. Messi will team up with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in PSG’s attack for the coming season.

Will Cristiano Ronaldo join Lionel Messi in Ligue 1?

Cristiano Ronaldo has received quite a bit of attention following Lionel Messi’s move to Paris Saint-Germain. Many have already given the Portuguese a tip to switch to the French top division and rekindle his rivalry with the former Barcelona playmaker.

Realistically, however, the chances of such a transfer this summer are almost non-existent. Ronaldo has returned to Juventus as the Serie A giants look forward to the new season.

A move of the winger to France remains a long way off. His contract with the old lady expires next summer and no one knows what he’s up to in the future. After CR7 has played in the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A, CR7 could well decide to get a taste of the French league.
