Paul Pogba hails the genius talent of Lionel Messi

Published Add your comment

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba tuned into the Copa del Rey final and witnessed Lionel Messi produce another outstanding performance that led Barcelona to a 3-1 victory over Athletic Bilbao.

The Frenchman was taken aback by the Argentine's extraordinary solo effort that gave Barcelona the lead midway through the first half.

Clearly in awe of Messi's magisterial quality, the 22-year-old took to social media to publicly acknowledge the sublime strike from the four-time Ballon d'Or winner.

He wrote on his Facebook page: "Messi scores goals every week that most footballers are lucky to score in their entire careers."

Pogba then went on to express what he himself thought about the solo effort, saying: "Messi. Incredible."

There are many supporters in the world who may also be thinking that Pogba could be expressing his delight towards Messi as he is preparing to make a move to the Camp Nou.

The former Manchester United youngster could leave Turin this summer with PSG, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Manchester United all interested in his services.

He would have to wait until January to sign for Barcelona who are still serving a transfer ban.

Juventus and Barcelona are chasing the treble dream and while they will be enemies for the duration of the game, Barca's sporting director Ariedo Braida could certainly register his interest in the 6ft 2in midfielder.

It is also the perfect opportunity for Messi and co to show the French midfielder that if he wants to become one of the very best he should move to the Camp Nou.
