When it became known that there would not be “The Last Dance” between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the friendly that Inter Miami played against Al-Nassr as part of their preseason, it was assumed to be the last opportunity for both world soccer superstars to meet. They will face each other on the playing field.

However, now speculation has begun about another type of meeting between the Portuguese star and the Argentine star since the Saudi Arabian press is talking about the possibility that both players end up sharing the same team in 2025.

That club would be none other than Inter Miami, the current home of Lionel Messi, which remains focused on continuing to add figures to its project that since the arrival of the eight-time Ballon d’Or winner has only incorporated pieces that had a successful time at European football.

The team chaired by the Englishman David Beckham did not stop only at Lionel Messi, but also added his teammates at FC Barcelona such as Sergi Busquets and Jordi Alba and more recently the Uruguayan Luis Suárez, who have given him a new life to the young MLS club.

But now, according to reports in the Saudi press, Las Garzas’ new plan would be to incorporate none other than Cristiano Ronaldo, who at 39 years old continues to demonstrate that he is increasingly relevant. The Portuguese star has scored 42 goals in his last 42 games.

According to the information that has been known, the plan that Inter Miami would be evaluating is to persuade the Portuguese to accept playing with the team for the 2025 season once his current contract with Al-Nassr of the Saudi Pro League ends, which ends in December of this year.

At Inter Miami they understand that despite CR7’s age, bringing him for this season would be a significant expense that the team is not able to assume at this time, taking into account the financial effort they have made so far to put together a super team around Messi.

The constellation of stars led by Argentine Gerardo “Tata” Martino has Inter Miami at the top of the 2024 MLS season in the Eastern Conference with a record of seven wins, three draws, and two losses in the first 12 dates of the tournament.

A hypothetical incorporation of Cristiano Ronaldo would greatly enhance the team’s attack and would fulfill the dream of many world football fans of seeing the two greatest figures of contemporary football share in the same starting eleven.
