'Messi should join CR7 at Juventus'


Everton star James Rodriguez says Lionel Messi should join Juventus and play with Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Argentine superstar is officially a free agent after Barcelona confirmed he will not be returning to the club after his contract expired.

Paris Saint-Germain is reportedly set to be Messi's next destination after Pep Guardiola also confirmed Manchester City will not be signing the six-time Ballon d'Or.

However, Rodriguez feels Messi should join forces with his former Real Madrid rival in Turin.

"Messi should go to Juventus and play with Cristiano Ronaldo," James said on a livestream on Twitch, as per Goal.

"It would be a bomb. It's the dream of many fans to see those two play together.

"Messi managed 30 goals and 30 assists for Barcelona per year at least. Now they will have to look for other players to do that."
