Mohamed Salah Overshadows Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Gets Grand Reception in Russian Federation

There has been intense speculation over Ronaldo's future after the 33-year-old suggested he could have played his last game for Real following their 3-1 victory over Liverpool in last month's Champions League final.

But La Liga chief Tebas has tried to reassure both Atletico and Real fans that their star players will not leave this summer.

Lionel Messi (left) and Cristiano Ronaldo (right) are universally considered to be the two greatest players of their generation, if not all time.

However, Pique was not the only player who was absent as coach Julen Lopetegui brought an end to the sweltering morning's work in Russian Federation, with Manchester City's David Silva also finishing training early.

"It wouldn't be so dramatic for the league".

"Spain are very strong and a serious candidate to win the World Cup, but we will have the same seriousness as with Morocco and Iran".

FC Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta has warned his Spain teammates about the danger Cristiano Ronaldo poses ahead of their 2018 FIFA World Cup clash with Portugal this week.

The former winners are indeed favourites to top their group, despite coming up against the reigning European champions; however, may have to take on the deadly attacking outfit without star defender Pique, who, according to Marca, was forced out of training on Monday with a knee injury.

"Given that he is such an important player for the team and one of the best in the world, it is normal that we have some dependence on him", he said.

Ronaldo has scored 18 goals in El Clasicos in all competitions, joint-highest with Real Madrid legend Alfredo Di Stéfano for most goals scored for Real Madrid in El Clasico.
