Messi Finally Responds To Ronaldo's 'Challenge'

With Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo recently urging Lionel Messi to join him in Italy, the FC Barcelona captain has finally responded to the Portuguese's comments.

Messi Comments On Missing Out On 2018 Ballon D'Or

Many were surprised when Ronaldo left Real Madrid for the Bianconeri during the off-season after nine incredible years in Spain, where he played a huge role in one of the greatest player rivalries the world has ever seen.

A few months after his move, the Portuguese international said he would love to have Messi join him Serie A, where they could once again compete with one another.

The Argentine, who has said many times that he would love to retire at Barca, responded to Ronaldo's comments in a recent interview.

"I don't need any change," Messi told Marca.

"I'm at the best team in the world. My challenges are renewed year after year.

"I do not need to change teams or leagues to set new goals. I am at home and I do not need to change."
