Messi will face Ronaldo in the tournament that will be held next February in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Manchester, United Kingdom – We can’t separate Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

It is possible that the two old rivals will meet again next year, even though they are playing on different continents.

Inter Miami, led by Messi, will travel to Saudi Arabia in February to participate in the “Season Cup” in Riyadh, which will also include the Saudi club Al-Nasr, led by Ronaldo. The tournament, which includes three teams, will be completed with the Al Hilal squad led by Neymar, although it is unlikely that the Brazilian star will be able to participate, as he suffered a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee last month.

Saudi Arabia is still trying to lure the biggest names in international football to their country, by offering them amazing contracts. But she was unable to convince Messi, who left Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season, to join the American club Florida, which is owned by former English star David Beckham and others.

Messi participated in the Riyadh Season Cup last year with Paris Saint-Germain, and clashed with Ronaldo after the legendary Portuguese player accepted Al-Nasr’s offer. In May, the Argentine player, who has won eight Ballon d’Ors in his career, was fined and suspended by the Parisian club for making an unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia.

Messi, who led Argentina to the World Cup last year, has already won his first trophy with Inter Miami: the League Cup in August.

Many consider Messi and Ronaldo to be the best players of all time, and they faced off several times when they were at the peak of their careers with FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, respectively.
