Marcelo 'desperate to join Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus'

Ronaldo was bought for just £12.4 million as an 18 year-old by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2003, where, as the first Portuguese player in the history of the Premier League, he would spend six lucrative seasons, the high point winning the first of his five Champions League trophies.

Real lost their Super Cup game against Atletico Madrid, but have won three games in a row to start their LaLiga campaign.

"It surprised me. I didn't imagine him leaving Madrid or joining Juventus". There were a lot of teams that wanted him. "Last season's result in Rome hurt especially, but we have a spectacular squad and we can fight for it [this season]".

"They study every match to try not to concede space to the other teams".

"It surprised me", he said about Ronaldo's decision to quit Real Madrid.

"I like to win at everything and at times I left my children win". Thiago understands and knows me.after a defeat we don't talk about it, he knows not to talk about it.

"He is very similar to Xavi as he likes to have the ball, play short, not lose it and is very solid". Things changed a while ago here and now the owners are multimillionaires. "Since I was 13 years I have been in Barcelona, in the best team in the world, in one of the best cities in the world, my kids were born in Catalunya and I don't feel the need to go anywhere", Messi said when attention turned to retirement and moving somewhere else. "Changes are very big and can be complicated".

Messi has had plenty of lucrative offers to leave Barca in the past, but stressed that he's happy where he is having signed a new four-year contract at Camp Nou in 2021, when he will be 34. I want to finish my contract and then we will see if I continue or not. "[But] the club can be calm [when I am gone] if they keep bringing players through the academy and making good signings".
