Ahead of the historic match later today, a visual artist reimagined Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo playing together at the same club. 

Regardless of how important the rivalry between these two has been, Messi and Ronaldo playing at the same club is a dream for many. At the moment, this is not even a possibility as Cristiano has the intention to remain at Juventus, and Messi won’t play there.

In fact, Leo’s plan is either to remain at FC Barcelona or go to one of the wealthiest clubs in the world. His two main options are Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain. But we can start dreaming of this possibility for a time when neither of them wants to continue playing at the highest level.

This is when one of those “retirement” clubs will come into play for both of them. We finally found a video where we can see how this would be like. A carefully crafted animated piece in which real moments from both footballers are meshed together to create the impossible. 

Messi and Ronaldo in all their glory. 

Football platform CRACKS released an animated video in which both players are wearing a light blue kit and about to play a football match together. We see them performing at the top of their abilities and assisting each other.

The craftsmanship is so good, that we can easily consider this was taken from an actual football game. We will get to see both of them competing against each other in the game between FC Barcelona and Juventus. But while that match approaches, you can sit down and enjoy this work of art.

Dreaming of this happening someday in the future is arguably a taboo subject for many. But for us, it would be a dream come true that will be considered a perfect way to end their careers.
