Almost a bomb had been dropped when Lionel Messi handed over the news of his transfer request and his wishes of leaving his childhood club Barcelona. Messi seems to have enough with his squad not helping him to score in crucial times and dealing with board antics, especially after the 8-2 defeat.
Though this news has come to the fans as a shocking revelation Messi has already begun looking for a team that is already stabilized and has been showing his interest in leaving the club.
Looking for the best team would be a task for him since there are so many teams that can lure him to play for them. However, Manchester United yields a special position and is in fact, miles ahead of every other team.
Potential destinations for Lionel Messi should he leave Barcelona
Messi can definitely rely on Sergio Aguero and Pep Guardiola who are the key prospects of the club. Here’s more to why Manchester United is looked upon as the perfect destination for Messi.
Messi has always been criticized for playing only in the Spanish League and not leaving Barcelona whereas his arch-rival, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been the toughest competition of La Pulga in Spain and has also flourished in England, and now its time for him to be good in Italy and become a new challenge for Messi to tackle.
A huge aspect for Messi to join Manchester United is considering the fact that it is a stable team as he needs to get ready to conquer England in the English Premier League which will definitely be challenging for him. Moreover, he is the top scorer in UCL against the English teams who play for a non-English and Spanish side.
Thus, you would see Barcelona fans wanting Messi to stay and protesting for the current board’s resignation. However, there are a few fans who want Messi to leave as a team could only be built without him because his presence seems more of a threat to his successor.
