Video: What if Barcelona and Real Madrid superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were mates?

Lionel Messi 2

Could you imagine if Ronaldo and Messi were best mates?!

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are rivals playing for two clubs with a long history of petty squabbles, while they have also been battling it out for the best part of a decade in an effort to get their sticky mitts on the Ballon d'Or.

We're sure that Messi and Ronaldo are on decent terms, but could you imagine a world where they had a really great bromance?

Well, thankfully we can imagine no more as some brilliant human being has made a video which has shown us what it would be like if they were friends. 

While they'd usually be exchanging some rather dirty looks with each other, this video has them doing all the best things best mates would do. From having a game on the PlayStation, taking a selfie, to going to the gym – Messi and Ronaldo may just be the new Joey and Chandler.

Come on then, do you think Messi and Ronaldo will ever become best mates or are they too busy trying to break each other's records and win awards?
