Paris Saint-Germain forward, Lionel Messi, has hailed Cristiano Ronaldo‘s displays for Manchester United this season.

According to him, Ronaldo has been “impressive” for the Red Devils.

Ronaldo has netted nine times ever since his return to Old Trafford from Juventus.

Messi and Ronaldo have long been rivals. They regularly went for the game’s biggest prizes during their spells at Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively, while they currently share nine Ballon d’Or awards between them.

These days, however, things are different.

Messi left Barcelona on a free transfer back in the summer, moving to Paris Saint-Germain to play alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, departed Juventus to return to United – having previously looked set to join Manchester City.

And Messi has now given his verdict on his foe, praising him for his form at Old Trafford so far.
