The comparisons between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi go on and on. Both have left Europe to open up new markets in world football. The Portuguese did it first by signing for Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia, and accepting to be the promotional image of an entire region in the Middle East.

While Lionel Messi has chosen the United States as his new home. He has made a verbal agreement with Inter Miami and intends to stay there for a long time. He has been offered a multi-contract with various benefits, including a personalised clothing line like that of Michael Jordan.

Life keeps giving them ideas to be able to cope in other circumstances, especially in commercial ones. The Portuguese has not been able to lift the coveted trophy with his team, while David Beckham's side find themselves in last place in their conference and with little chance of a comeback.

Certainly, the most interesting thing for fans in both regions is to try to get a ticket to see these global sporting stalwarts. But it won't be so easy for the Arabs despite the money, while the Americans will have to fight one of their favourite enemies: scalping.

What is the price difference to see Cristiano and Messi?

While Al-Nassr has sold a luxury ticket to Mushref al-Ghamdi for $2.6 million to see Cristiano Ronaldo at auction and is considered the most expensive football ticket in history, to watch Lionel Messi and his Inter Miami the prices will be around $236 the most expensive one, which is a huge difference and will be easier on American soil.
