NFL legend Tom Brady gains the limelight irrespective of what he does and when two other GOAT players are involved, it becomes even big news. So recently, Brady was in the news after he congratulated Lionel Messi for joining Inter Miami in MLS. But ever since then, people started guessing whether it marked the end of the friendship between Brady and Cristiano Ronaldo.
On July 18, 2023, Inter Miami officially announced star footballer Messi joining them with a $54 million deal. They did it through a post on Twitter which included a video of various celebrities extending their wishes and among those celebrities was Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Tom Brady.
“I wanted to say congratulations on the big move to Miami,” Brady said in the video.
But ever since then, there were rumors of Tom Brady ending his friendship with Messi‘s biggest rival, Ronaldo. For people, Messi and Ronaldo are like two names that can’t be together and so the 7-time Super Bowl winner cheering for Messing meant he was over Cristiano Ronaldo. Moreover, Ronaldo also joined Al-Nassr FC in December 2022, but Brady had not posted any message for him.
Everyone has witnessed the sweet friendship that Ronaldo and Tom Brady share. According to reports, their friendship is still intact as the two still share a close bond and to prove this claim further, both Ronaldo and Brady follow each other on Instagram even now.
Though it’s worth noting that Tom Brady follows Lionel Messi on Instagram as well. But the Inter Miami star doesn’t follow Brady back so it makes the situation even more clear and points towards Brady and Ronaldo still being friends.
A close look at the friendship between Cristiano Ronaldo and Tom Brady
There have been moments when Tom Brady and Cristiano Ronaldo have appeared together and it excites the fans of both stars a lot to see the two of them together. But the friendship between Brady and Ronaldo developed when they were playing for the Buccaneers and Manchester United respectively.
For those who don’t know, both those teams have the same owners, the Glazer family and because of that, Tom Brady visited Ronaldo after the latter scored a hat trick in 2022 and at that time, the video of them hugging each other got viral.
“Great game. Good playing. You played great,” said Brady to Ronaldo in the video.
After that, Tom Brady posted an Instagram story for the former MU player. “Legend @cristiano,” he wrote along with it. Ronaldo, on the other hand, posted a picture with the NFL star, and with that, he added the caption “Always a pleasure and a privilege to share some thoughts and ideas with another GOAT“.
Cristiano Ronaldo spilled the beans about his conversation with Tom Brady in an interview with Piers Morgan last year. During the interview, he talked about how he had a good conversation with Brady. He also mentioned that the NFL Hall of Famer gave him positive vibes. However, with Brady Praising Lionel Messi, it will be interesting to see if the 7-time Super Bowl champion stays in touch with Ronaldo or not.
