But despite an impressive debut season in France, speculation has been rife that Neymar could be set to move on again.

Messi also admitted signing Neymar "make Real Madrid even stronger from a football point of view", before adding of the rumours, "I speak with him, so he already knows what I think".

"Seeing Neymar at Real Madrid would be awful", he said in an interview with TyC via Mirror.

And Real Madrid will now have to face one of European football's most risky attacking sides in ordto retain their trophy, with the final set to be played at the NSC Olimpiyskiy in Ukraine's capital city.

Neymar has scored 28 goals and made 19 assists across all competitions this term.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is relishing the challenge of facing Cristiano Ronaldo in the upcoming Champions League final and is confident he'll be able to stop his attacking threat.

Much of Messi's career has been spent competing with Ronaldo for the title of world's best, with the pair having enjoyed a decade of dominance at the top of the game.

"With Ronaldo being one of the greats, probably one of the best players ever, it's going to be an honour to hopefully play against him,". "It's what we all want".
