Lille veteran Fonte: Messi? I'm writing to Ronaldo to also join us in Ligue 1!

Lille veteran Jose Fonte admits he's tried to recruit Portugal teammate Cristiano Ronaldo for Ligue 1.

Fonte made the revelation when celebrating former Barcelona captain Lionel Messi's move to PSG today.

He declared, "It is exciting. Although competitively speaking it will be more difficult for us (due to the arrival of Messi), we are ready for the challenge.

"I write to Cristiano every day to come to Lille but he only replied ... ha ha ha."

On the Juventus striker, Fonte insists: "I will try to bring Cristiano in one way or another, I will find a plan! He only needs the title of France."
