Paris Saint-Germain star Angel Di Maria says Cristiano Ronaldo would be dying to play in Paris after Lionel Messi joined the club.
The Argentine superstar joined the Ligue 1 giants last week after he bid farewell to Barcelona after 21 years the weekend before.
Ronaldo has been linked with PSG in the past, but Di Maria claims it is better that the French club secured Messi's services instead.
"Cristiano Ronaldo would be dying to be here. The quality and quantity of players at PSG is something unique," he told TyC Sports.
"It doesn't happen often in clubs and the greats always want to be with the best. Cristiano would certainly like to be here, but they signed Messi and luckily, it's better this way."
Di Maria added that the former Barcelona superstar is still the best player he's played with in his career.
"Messi is of another category. You throw a stone at him and he stops it, he does it as if it was nothing. He thinks before the others," he continued
"I have never seen anything like it. I have played with Cristiano, Neymar, [Kylian] Mbappe, [Wayne] Rooney, [Robin] van Persie, [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, [Karim] Benzema, [Gareth] Bale and honestly, I have never seen anything like it.
"Leo is something unique. For me, it's very easy to play with him. If you run, he gives you the ball at your feet. There are no excuses. I have a very good relationship with him, even off the pitch.
"I think Messi will feel better here than in Catalunya. With the welcome he has had in Paris, I think he already understands what he represents."
