Giggs: Messi obsession led Cristiano Ronaldo to Italy

By Boluwatife Ezekiel Olaleye

A former Manchester United star, Ryan Giggs, has revealed how Barcelona forward, Lionel Messi made Cristiano Ronaldo sign for Juventus.

Giggs, a former teammate of the Portuguese superstar said Ronaldo was obsessed with being better than Lionel Messi.

Ronaldo has signed a €100m deal from with Juventus from Real Madrid.

The deal will see the former Madrid player spending the next four-year contract with the Bianconeri.

Speaking with ITV Sport, Giggs said, “I’m surprised that he would leave Real Madrid and go to Italy.

“I think it’s a big challenge for him but he’s going to a huge club. Having that on your CV… Real Madrid, Man United and Juventus. It’s some CV.

“He’s obsessed with being better than Messi. He has that now that: ‘I did it in England,

I did it in Spain, I’m going to do it in Italy… and I did it with Portugal’.

“So maybe that will be his argument when people ask: ‘Is Ronaldo better than Messi?’.”
