Allegri defends Cristiano: "In Italy no one scores 40 goals a season"

FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi

Ronaldo was bought for just £12.4 million as an 18 year-old by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2003, where, as the first Portuguese player in the history of the Premier League, he would spend six lucrative seasons, the high point winning the first of his five Champions League trophies.

"Before, everyone wanted to go to Barcelona or Real Madrid, who were the best, but now no, now every has been compressed and there is little difference between the teams like Manchester, PSG, Madrid, us, Bayern, the Italians".

"It surprised me. I didn't imagine him leaving Madrid or joining Juventus". I hope that with my experience with my motivation, my goals, I can teach him some stuff, but you know he is going to be whatever he wants.

"We are concentrating on this because it is possible, we have a squad where we can fight for this competition". I know I can't avoid that now, I have to do that. "He's got to grips really quickly with the team's dynamic". "Changes are very big and can be complicated".

"There are clubs now with a lot of money and players move for that reason", he said. In the Spurs match, we were positive and strong and I think the opponent, a very good opponent, felt they were in trouble. Things have changed and now the owners of clubs are multi-millionaires.

"I wouldn't say that the Italian league is more hard or better than other leagues but it does require more attention", he said after the victory over Parma.

Messi has had plenty of lucrative offers to leave Barca in the past, but stressed that he's happy where he is having signed a new four-year contract at Camp Nou in 2021, when he will be 34. I think about the year we were knocked out in the semi-finals by Inter and then by Chelsea'.

"When the moment comes, I will decide".

"The club can be calm if they bring players from the cantera and make good signings".
