Ronaldo holds talks with Real Madrid prior to US Visit

Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly skipped the third-place play-off against Mexico in the Confederations Cup in order to hold talks with Real Madrid en route to the United States.

The 32-year-old had his best performance in the Los Blancos shirt last term as he guided the Spanish outfit to a La Liga and Champions League double – the first time the club have achieved it since 1958.

Ronaldo beats Messi on social media

The long-lasting rivalry between Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona FC’s Lionel Messi goes well beyond the pitch.

Sure, it’s fun to argue which player has bragging rights as the greatest footballer in the world, but life off the pitch can be just as debateable when talking about these two soccer greats.
