Real President Compares Messi To Zidane

Real Madrid President Compares Messi To Zinedine Zidane

By Kurt Buckerfield - Sep 08, 2017 05:45 PM @KurtLaduma

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has spoken about FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi, comparing the Argentine to Zinedine Zidane.

Is This Why Messi Hasn't Signed New Barca Deal?

The Los Blancos chief has admitted he would have tried to go after the five-time Ballon d'Or had he been available in his first spell as Real president, likening the Barca icon to Zidane.

"If there had been a Messi in my first stage (as president), I would have gone after him," Perez told Cadena SER.

"He is a type of player like Zidane."

Perez was also asked about the possibility of luring Messi to Real in the future.

"In my first stage, possibly. He is now a Barca player," he added.

"He has been there since he was a kid. It would be very difficult."

The Argentine's current deal at Barca expires at the end of this season, and despite the board being confident he will extend his stay, he is yet to commit his future to the Catalans.

Do you think Messi and Ronaldo would play well together? Let us know in the comments section below.

MXM.....you are being fooled by Perez games. Ronaldo is leaving Spanish football and Messi is to replace him next season. You watch the space.
