Lionel Messi rates Man Utd’s chances of winning the Champions League after signing Cristiano Ronaldo

PSG star Lionel Messi believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United team are one of the contenders to win the Champions League this season after signing good players during the summer.

The Red Devils signed Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus, Raphael Varane from Real Madrid and Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund during the summer.

Messi told beIN SPORTS: “I think it is my biggest target and the club’s.

“They have bee looking to win the Champions League and they have been very close. I think it is their main target.

“We are one of the main candidates, but not the only one.

“Everyone is talking about PSG because of the players, but other clubs have been working together for years and have also signed good players, like Man United, Man City, Bayern, Liverpool, Atletico and Chelsea.

“There are plenty of clubs who can win the Champions League, it is a very difficult competition and the best team doesn’t always win it.

“You need a lot of things to win it, everything is possible and we are one of the candidates, of course.”
