Chelsea and Manchester United make shock approaches for world’s best footballer

messiPremier League fans in the Transfer Tavern have been left speechless this afternoon after reports linked the finest player in world football with a switch to England.

According to The Sun, Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City have all made informal approaches to sign Ballon D’Or favourite Lionel Messi from Barcelona, in what would be a sensational deal.

Argentine superstar Messi is currently locked in the middle of a tax debate in Spain, which could land him in jail if he’s found guilty, and it’s suggested Messi is fed-up with the whole procedure and is contemplating an exit from the club where he’s spent his entire career.

Barcelona will understandably fight tooth and nail to keep the South American, widely regarded as the best footballer to ever play the beautiful game, and an audacious figure would be necessary for the Catalan side to even contemplate parting with the iconic forward.

With 356 career goals, 313 being for Barcelona, Messi is a deadly attacker that creates havoc amongst the finest defences in Europe. At 28-years-old, his impressive trophy haul includes seven La Liga titles, three Copa Del Reys, six SuperCups and four Champions League crowns.

Fans in the bar do not believe any club has the ability to prize Messi away from the clutches of Barcelona and, unfortunately, don’t think he will ever grace the Premier League.

Could Lionel Messi really leave Barcelona!? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
