Lionel Messi could make Premier League switch - Negredo

Published 3 Comments

Manchester City forward Alvaro Negredo has revealed he could see World Player of the Year Lionel Messi moving to England in the future, reports The Daily Star

Messi, who has been linked with a move to Chelsea in recent weeks, has consistently played his football in La Liga at Barcelona, however Negredo, who made the switch from Spain to England this past summer, believes the Argentine may one day follow him to the Premier League.

When being asked about the possibility of seeing the superstar in England's elite division, the Spaniard told reporters: “I suppose so."

Negredo believes the Argentine ace would star in any league in the world and one day may opt for a new challenge and leave La Liga behind. 

The Citizens star continued by saying: “He is a player who can play really well in any league at all.

“Maybe in two years’ time or five years’ time he will get bored with La Liga, want a change and come here."

Messi is currently preparing for Barcelona's clash with Real Betis tonight as the look to extend their lead at the top of La Liga. 

Do you agree with Negredo? Could Messi one day head to the Premier League and play for either Chelsea or Manchester City or will he stay at Barcelona for life?
