  • Mohamed Salah not a fan of Messi and Ronaldo comparisons

Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah has heaped praise on the meteoric rise of Liverpool forward Mohammed Salah but does not believe he is on par with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Last August, PSG paid Barcelona a record transfer fee of 222 million euros ($263 million) for Neymar, who reportedly started talking about leaving the French club after they were eliminated from the Champions League by Real Madrid.

Manchester United have also been linked with a move for the 26-year-old but Real Madrid are favourites to land Neymar.

"I don't have to move to another team to prove anything to anyone", Messi told TyC Sports (via Sport).

He has won a host of awards, too, collecting the Golden Boot, the Premier League Player of the Year prize, the FWA Footballer of the Year and the PFA Player of the Year awards.

If he does join Real it would mean him lining up against his former Barcelona side next season in Spain's La Liga - and that's something Messi does not want to see. "On a football level, it will make Madrid much stronger than it already is", he said.

The Egypt global has been repeatedly compared to La Liga legend Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi following his impressive performances with Liverpool.

"I am at the best team in the world, living in one of the best cities, my family is well-off, and my children have their friends. You know a lot about him and the likes of [Lionel] Messi because you watch them on YouTube when you're growing up, you always watch those type of players", he told reporters.

Messi said: "I do not go to City".

"I'm not tempted to leave Barça", he began. "I want to win LaLiga and the Champions League together".

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.
