Messi – Ronaldo rivalry made the La Liga take a shape most leagues will really love but this seem to be coming to an end and as Real Madrid have yet to make a big signing to replace the Portuguese it seems inevitable, there will be no such rivalry in the La Liga this season..
Valverde though believes that Real Madrid could still sign a big player capable of sparking a new rivalry before the close of the transfer window August 31.
“Ronaldo’s departure would seem to have ended the competition between Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo because people rarely mention one without mentioning the other,” Valverde told Barca Magazine.
“A lot of people are interested, me too, to see how it will affect Real Madrid’s football and what they might do in the transfer market, and also knowing that Ronaldo is at another club and what that might mean for La Liga and the Champions League too.”
