“You’re going to play with Lionel Messi” Real Madrid winger Rodrygo revealed why he turned down Barca offer to sign for Real Madrid.
Rodrygo is a huge talent that every manager would love to have in his team and Real Madrid were lucky to have him.
He had a lot of offers on the table during his time in the Brazilian league and it’s time to further his career from Santos.
Real Madrid madea move for him, including rival Barcelona, but it was his dream to play for the Madridistas and it came to pass.
While speaking via YouTube, he revealed that his father told him the chance of playing together with Lionel Messi, but he still picked Real Madrid over Barcelona.
He could have played together with Lionel Messi at Barcelona, but he wouldn’t have won the UEFA Champions League trophy with him as things stand.
The Argentine forward won his last Champions League trophy with Barcelona in 2015 and he left the club last summer.
Rodrygo made a good decision in my own opinion and he is living the dream at Real Madrid.
Rodrygo: “I always told my father to wait a bit, but he said ‘you’re going to play with Messi, man’ but I asked him to wait, it had to be Real Madrid.”
“One day my father came home, entered my room and came back with a Real Madrid shirt and a Barca shirt and said ‘Now you choose’ I said: ‘There’s nothing to think about’ and I chose Real Madrid.”
“Would Mbappe arrive as a starter at Real Madrid? We’ve just won the Champions League, whether he comes or not, it doesn’t matter to us.”
