Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller has admitted that he would have loved to have seen Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo play together in one team.

Ronaldo decided to leave Juventus and return to Manchester United, while Messi moved to Paris Saint-Germain following the end of his contract with Barcelona.

The prospect of the two playing at PSG became a possibility at one point - and now the Germany star has stated that it would have been a dream for fans of the sport.

The 31-year-old told Sky Sports: "If Kylian Mbappe is still going [from PSG], then I would have liked to see Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi play together.

"That would have been a very interesting combination, especially for me as a fan of the sport. You need players who are good on the ball and who are well off the ball.

"Cristiano has become a very strong final player. He doesn't need the ball that deep anymore. Messi and Neymar could have walked through midfield. That would have been interesting."
