It would be bad because of everything Ney means for Barcelona.
"I want to challenge myself and test myself against the best players in the world and there are not many people better than the likes of Ronaldo".
His solitary goal made sure he entered his name in English football folklore as the highest individual scorer in a single season, beating illustrious names as Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez.
"If he ends up in Madrid it would be a tough blow for us and for all of Barcelona".
The Argentine continued: 'I don't compete with Cristiano.
Madrid also survived scares in the Champions League knockouts against Juventus and Bayern Munich to reach another final, but Messi says its determination to battle through such ties should be commended.
"It's not an objective to be the best in history".
Neymar said yesterday that he is focusing on getting well early enough to represent his country at thye summer World Cup in Russian Federation. The defender has been in form this season by displaying a classic performance for the Reds and he is set to give himself a real test against the world's best players when they clash.
"I am trying to improve every year so I am very happy".
Argentina has been written off by some observers due to its 6-1 friendly thrashing by Spain in March, but Messi, who missed that game through injury, says the scoreline did not tell the whole story.
