It would be a dream for the Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan to play alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. He ‘s unlikely to get an opportunity but Ilkay Gundogan would love to play on a team with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Playing alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will be a sight for the Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan.
For more than a decade, Barcelona’s captain Messi and Juventus superstar Ronaldo dominated world football, winning six and five Ballons d’Or respectively.
The Argentine legend is the all-time leading goal scorer of the Catalan giants with 627 in 718 appearances and has won 34 trophies with the club, although at a senior international level he has not had his hands on any silverware.
Ronaldo finished Real Madrid’s goalscoring charts after nine years at the Santiago Bernabeu, and despite not winning as many titles as Messi during his impressive career, he led Portugal to success at Euro 2016 and in the inaugural League of Nations.
Gundogan rates Messi higher than Ronaldo, but the opportunity to feed the two from midfield would be appreciated.
“Messi is a footballer who is not going to be born as a talent again. Messi is a bit higher for me. Messi and Ronaldo are very important players too. One day, I would like to play on the same team with both of them,” Gundogan told Fanatik..”
The Premier League season will resume next week after its suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic, allowing David Silva to play his final games with City before departure at the end of his deal.
“Playing with Silva is extremely enjoyable. I enjoy playing with David Silva. He’s a really smart football player. We ‘re getting along well on and off the pitch,” Gundogan said.
