De Bruyne chooses between Messi, Ronaldo


Manchester City midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne has said that he would rather have Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo as his teammate than Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi.

De Bruyne said that Messi is more of a creative player like him, while Ronaldo is more lethal in terms of being a goalscorer.

Speaking to SportBIBLE, the Belgium international said, “I would probably say Ronaldo because he’s more of a typical striker, Messi is still more of a playmaker.

“I am a playmaker, you can give me a striker.”

Ronaldo and Messi are two of the standout players of this generation.

While Messi’s goal scoring prowess is tremendous, Ronaldo is often the more reliable man for the big occasions.

Hence, it is understandable why a supreme playmaker like De Bruyne would want to have the Portugal international by his side.

De Bruyne, 31, has scored one goal and provided eight assists for Manchester City so far this season.

His playmaking skills have been phenomenal throughout his career as he has played 317 games for Pep Guardiola’s side in his career, scoring 87 goals and providing 129 assists.
