PSG's Thiago Silva would rather face Cristiano Ronaldo than Lionel Messi

"They have not bought big and thought that with the young players they can compensate for that".

The Los Blancos superstar, who turned 33 today, receives a reported annual salary of €21 million (R315 million) at Real, which is far less than the likes of Neymar and Messi are getting following their new deals in 2017.

David Beckham believes Cristiano Ronaldo will reserve his peak form for Real Madrid's upcoming Champions League blockbuster with Paris Saint-Germain. In fact, he's only lagging behind Messi's total of club goals, having scored 268 to Messi's 313.

The five time Ballon d'Or winner's current contract with Real runs until June 2021.

Ligue 1 leaders PSG will travel to Madrid's Santiago Bernabéu for the first leg of their last-16 tie on February 14.

The Brazil worldwide has admitted that he is happy to be facing Ronaldo and not Barcelona's Lionel Messi in the Champions League round of 16 first leg next week.

"The little difference between them is that Messi, with the ball, one on one, or even against two, is hard to stop".

The Portuguese legend has broken record after record in a career that has seen him amass countless trophies in England and Spain, as well as winning the Champions League four times and leading his national side to victory in the European Championships in 2016.

Should Neymar manage to lead PSG to Champions League glory and Brazil to another World Cup title, there is little doubt that he will secure his first Ballon d'Or - one of the key reasons why he wanted to step out of Messi's shadow in Barcelona.
