It is official. Arthur will play next season at Juventus, after the unusual exchange with money from Pjanic and the Brazilian midfielder. In this way, the exazulgrana will share costumes, except for a totally unexpected movement, with Cristiano Ronaldo. It will be months after being a partner of Leo Messi. Of course, a privilege that few footballers can count on. Arthur will accompany the two best of the decade, as almost no player has ever managed. Pjanic, of course, will go the same way.
Leaving aside Cristiano's teammates who have had the opportunity to wear the shirt of the Argentine team or those of Messi who did the same with the Portuguese, only two players have been part of the same squad as the two stars. Natural, on the other hand, since Messi has played his entire career at Barcelona and CR7 has spent his best years at Real Madrid. Furthermore, in the period of time in which both played soccer in Spain, no athlete wore the shirts of both teams.
These are the footballers with whom both have shared day by day:
Before arriving at Barcelona, played with Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2007-08 season at Manchester United. He also had no special role, although he even scored two goals in the four Champions League games played. He played a total of 23 games, before returning home to Camp Noor. Years later, he would deal with his ex-partner on multiple occasions. Of course, he has stressed on countless occasions that for him Leo Messi is the best player in the world.
The Swede shared costumes with both, although still far from the level they have shown in recent years. In 2006, while working for Barcelona, he saw a young and talented Leo Messi grow up. Later, in the winter of 2007, he signed for Manchester, when a Cristiano Ronaldo, just 22 years old, was already giving free rein to all his power on the pitch.
Partners with Argentina
One of the most accepted speeches when defending that Messi is not the best player in history is that he has not achieved great things with Argentina. However, the '10' has been faithful to Albiceleste, where he has shared successes and failures with several of Cristiano Ronaldo's teammates: Ezequiel Garay, Paulo Dybala, Angel Di María, Gonzalo Higuaín, Fernando Gago, Gabriel Heinze and Carlos Tévez.
Partners with Portugal
On the contrary, Cristiano is recognized as one of the greatest architects of the good years of the Portugal team, despite the fact that it does not have as many world elite players. Of all his colleagues, only three have shared costumes with Leo Messi: André Gomes, Deco and Nelson Semedo.
