Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo: Neymar has his say on who is best in the world
Neymar has been linked with a move back to the Spanish top tier all summer, having now missed all of PSG's first three games of the Ligue 1 campaign. A return to Barcelona was widely seen as a possibility, especially with the division champions offloading Philippe Coutinho, while Real Madrid have also been linked with their former rival. The Brazilian star's future remains up in the air, with Thomas Tuchel stating on Sunday that he was unsure what will happen with Neymar before the window shuts next week. And Tebas admitted that he would like to have Neymar back in Spain, wherever he ends up, but the presence of the Brazilian would not be as vital as that of former team-mate Messi when it comes to growing the league's popularity overseas. With his qualities he's in the top three players in the world.

Neymar has been linked with an early exit from PSG – but where could he go?
Argentine professional footballer. Portuguese professional footballer. The Ronaldo—Messi rivalry is a football rivalry between fans of Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentinian forward Lionel Messi and supposedly between the athletes themselves. They are two of the most decorated football players ever, having won a combined 63 trophies Ronaldo 29, Messi 34 during their careers thus far, and have regularly broken the 50 goal barrier in a single season. They are amongst the 28 players in the history of the sport to score over career goals, currently ranked at 6th Ronaldo and 7th Messi respectively, with both having scored over goals each in their careers for club and country. Some commentators choose to analyse the differing physiques and playing styles of the two,  while part of the debate revolves around the contrasting personalities of the two players: Ronaldo is sometimes described as someone of temperamental character while Messi is portrayed as having a more reserved character.
