Any club in the world would be interested to take this Argentine superstar in the team. But this time the matter is complicated, in fact very few clubs are ready to sign Messi on the official pad of the club. One of them is Manchester City.
Sergio Aguero, one of Messi’s two best friends, has played for many years in Manchester City, making him one of the most successful footballers in the club’s history. Another dear friend Cesc Fabregas has played English football for a long time. So, Messi has a high opinion of the Premier League. And the clubs that are able to pay more to Messi are Manchester City.
Also, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are looking much more forward to take Messi to their club. This time Paris Saint-Germain has become the runner-up of the Champions League, the biggest competition in European club football.
They have arthur, cavani and if Messi is included in the team, the football world can see the juxtaposition of Messi and Neymar JR again.
Needless to say, Messi has had the best time of his club career under Pep Guardiola.
Messi fans are still shocked that Messi is leaving or requesting to leave Barcelona. Again, many are still optimistic that Messi will stay in Barcelona, it will be no exception.
If Messi comes to the prem and the stadiums are empty it will be a travesty 😩
