At least one of Real Madrid or Manchester City have been in the Champions League final over the last four years and have won the last three finals. The clubs have now been named as the two best teams in the world by the most decorated player in football history.

In an exclusive interview with InfoBae, he said: “Best team in the world? Real Madrid, the current European champions. If we talk about results, Real Madrid is the best. If we are talking about performance-wise, Manchester City, led by Pep, is the best.”

Real Madrid Champions winners

Messi’s remarks shouldn’t come as a surprise given that Real Madrid won both LaLiga and the Champions League this season. Naturally, he made the extra effort to assert that Manchester City trumps Real Madrid in terms of footballing level, but that was to be anticipated given that he and Guardiola still share a special relationship.

The eight-time Ballon d’Or winner will now attempt to help his Argentina side win their fourth-straight official trophy when they take on the challenge of the Copa America. They begin their campaign on June 20 against Canada
