- Lionel Messi reportedly believes he will beat Ronaldo to the individual awards next year
- Ronaldo has scored just one La Liga goal this season and Messi believes he is finished
- Don Balon report Messi think Ronaldo will not score as many goals this season as he has done before
Lionel Messi reportedly believes he will dominate the football landscape as Cristiano Ronaldo has endured a nightmare start to the season, scoring just one La Liga goal for Real Madrid so far.
Real Madrid chiefs are worried that Ronaldo is no longer the player he once was and he will be 33-years-old in February in 2018.
Spanish website Don Balon claims that "Lionel Messi thinks Ronaldo will never rediscover the form that has made him such a formidable opponent of the years."
Ronaldo won the 2017 FIFA’s Player of the Year award last month after helping the club win La Liga and the UEFA Champions League last season.
The Portuguese has eight goals in all competitions this season and Don Balon say Messi has made it known he intends to up his game even further to beat Ronaldo to individual awards next season.
The 30-year-old Argentine believes Ronaldo will not be able to beat his scoring feat this season having scored 12 for the current campaign already.
