‘I was curious because we shared this stage for 15 years me and him,’ Ronaldo said. 

‘I don’t know if that has ever happened in football, the same two guys on the stage at the same time, so it’s not easy. 

‘Of course we have a good relationship, we have not had dinner together yet but I hope in the future.’

Both Messi and Ronaldo had five Ballon d’Ors to their names when seen in deep conversation in France in 2019. 

The Argentine star is now two ahead of the Portuguese after making history by winning his seventh gong last month.

Ronaldo and Messi were sat next to each other as both were nominated for the UEFA Player of the Season, alongside eventual winner Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk.

The pair could be reunited at the Best FIFA Men’s Player award on January 17 as they’re both included in the 11-player shortlist for the gong.

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne, Chelsea duo Jorginho and N’Golo Kante, Paris Saint-Germain forwards Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, last year’s winner Robert Lewandowski, Borussia Dortmund talisman Erling Haaland and Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema complete the line-up.
