'Mohammed Salah is not at Ronaldo, Messi level', - says Kwadwo Asamoah

Barcelona star Lionel Messi

"It would be bad [if Neymar moved to Madrid] because of everything he means to Barcelona", Messi said in an interview with Argentina's TyC Sports. "Definitely, they are great players".

Messi will have the chance to play with Aguero this summer, though, as the two team up to try to win a first World Cup trophy for the Albiceleste since 1986.

"Brazil are going into the finals in good form, despite the bad luck they had with Ney's injury", the Argentinian said.

Messi told TyC Sports on Tuesday that "it would be bad, for all that Ney means to Barcelona".

Liverpool youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold says that he is looking forward to the challenge of coming up against Cristiano Ronaldo in the Champions League final.

He continued: "It's not an objective to be the best in history". I think he'll stay, We never believed in him leaving. I will not be better anywhere else, this is the best team in the world.

He added: "I always want to improve myself and I do not compete with anyone because I do not play to be the best in history but to improve myself year after year and to keep winning".

Salah's goal tally has matched the two superstars this season, but the Egyptian has admitted it is too early for him to be compared to Messi and Ronaldo.

Manchester United have also been linked with a move for the 26-year-old but Real Madrid are favourites to land Neymar. "I do not need to go to another team to prove anything".

"I have thought about other leagues - especially the league in England - but it is very hard to leave Barcelona".

Real travel to Villarreal as their La Liga campaign comes to an end on Saturday with a week after that to prepare for their biggest match of the season against the Reds in Kiev.
