Manchester United trying to convince Lionel Messi to leave Barcelona

Published 1 Comments

What better way to kick off the day than with a transfer bomb concerning Lionel Messi? According to The Sun, Manchester United are just one of a few top English clubs who believe the Argentine magician can finally be pried from Barcelona after 14 years in Catalunya. Hard as it is to digest, it’s claimed informal approaches have been made to Messi’s representatives in recent months, with one unnamed club having made contact twice in the last seven days. Just incase there’s any confusion we don’t think Messi is about to become Louis van Gaal’s next big signing, but credit for originality all the same. On to team news, and Van Gaal himself has spoken about English football’s lack of a winter break, describing it as ‘evil’. The Dutchman attributed the problem to the reason both English clubs and the England international team are struggling in major competitions and said it should be changed.
