World’s greatest linked with shock Barcelona exit

leo messiFans from a variety of clubs in the Transfer Tavern have been stunned by a report read out by one punter, which declares the world’s best footballer could be on the move in 2018.

Lionel Messi has faced a turbulent few months off the field due to a tax avoidance case, which could potentially land him in jail, and Fichajes claims the whole incident has left the Barcelona star contemplating an exit.

Said to be unhappy and losing his patience with life in Spain, any exit from the Catalan giants in two-years time would send shockwaves across world football; as it’s unclear where the 28-year-old would go, having spent his entire career with Barcelona.

Paris Saint-Germain are likely to be the favourites, should a Messi exit take place, due to their immense financial prowess but last year it was claimed the Argentine considered joining Premier League outfit Arsenal.

If Messi was to leave Barcelona then every club in world football would be anxiously working out their finances and whether they could afford a move for the little magician, who has wowed fans for the past decade with his fantastic ability.

Where would Lionel Messi go if he left Barcelona? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
