Messi tips Juve to win Champions League

"I thought the squad was fantastic, the players are very good in all areas of the pitch and are capable to compete for titles".

Messi has gone three seasons without winning the Champions League, last doing so in 2015, and admits it is his major goal this season: 'It's time [to win it again].

Between them, Messi and Ronaldo have won the Champions League nine times and have a combined 14 domestic league titles.

'And it makes Juventus [one of the] clear favourites to win the Champions League'.

Now, however, Modric's national team manager, Zlatko Dalic, has got in on the act by describing Ronaldo, in an interview with Croatian newspaper Sportske Novosti, as "egotist" who "I'd never want him in my team!"

Modric made the shortlist after helping Real Madrid to a third straight Champions League title in May and then leading Croatia to the World Cup final in Russian Federation this summer, including a 3-0 group stage win over Messi's Argentina.

"I think we have to aim for that, as a club, as a team and as a collective".

President Trump's leaked 'off-record' comments complicate trade deal with Canada
Throughout the day Friday, it became increasingly clear that Canada and the US would be unable to reach an agreement. And his team said it preferred bi-lateral, or two-way, deals with each of Canada and Mexico.

"We are concentrating on this because it is possible, we have a squad where we can fight for this competition".

Messi believes the lure of Barcelona and Real Madrid is now being neutralised by the mouth-watering sums on offer.

"Wherever the most money is, that's where they end up going".

Messi, widely regarded as one of the world's greatest ever players, has won a host of individual accolades during his career. "Arturo Vidal would give his life for the team and Malcom's like [Juventus'] Douglas Costa when he was starting out".

Despite all of this, Lopetegui has defended the 30-year-old in public. "I asked them to let me go, in the same way they did with Gabi [who joined Al Sadd]", he explained. "I am at the best club in the world, where I want to be".

"He has the style we always look for here".
