Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah praised Mohamed Salah but said that the Egyptian winger is not at the level of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

He has scored 383 goals 417 matches for the Catalans - winning nine La Liga titles, three Champions League and several other domestic and continental cups in the process.

Neymar moved to Paris Saint-Germain last summer in a record-breaking €222 million (£195m/$263m) transfer, but rumours have swirled around his future all season. But he has been linked with a move to Madrid this summer after just one year in France.

The Egypt global has been repeatedly compared to La Liga legend Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi following his impressive performances with Liverpool. And at a soccer level, he would make Madrid much stronger than that it is. "You know a lot about him and the likes of [Lionel] Messi because you watch them on YouTube when you're growing up, you always watch those type of players", he told reporters. "I fight to win everything and I don't need to go anywhere else to prove anything", he claimed.

Messi, though, says he is not interested in striving to be acknowledged as the very best, even though watching Ronaldo and Madrid prepare for a third European final in a row has given him an extra drive to succeed. It's the best city in the world, my kids are happy and have all their friends here. "I want to win LaLiga and the Champions League together".

The Brazilian has refused to talk about the speculation and said he is concentrating on recovering from a foot injury in time for next month's World Cup. "The fact that we got to the finals and didn't win anything is a weight that we carry with us and we want to break this barrier" it was confirmed, before Messi stated his belief that Argentina can still mount an impressive effort this year without lifting the trophy. Argentina beat Italy 2-0 in a March friendly but that victory was sandwiched by a 4-2 loss to Nigeria and a 6-1 hammering by Spain.
