Messi to Juventus?
It goes without saying that Manchester City remain the firm favourites to welcome him with open arms this summer, but L’Equipe are reporting that Juve have thrown their hat into the ring.
It was explained in the French newspaper that Juventus had made a ‘discreet approach’ to Messi’s father and agent, Jorge, in order to form a ‘super-team’ with Cristiano Ronaldo.
And although everybody is thrilled about the prospect of Messi playing in the Premier League, seeing him share a dressing room with Ronaldo is surely even more exciting still.
How Juventus could line up in 2020/21
It would take some serious financial shuffling and some outmanoeuvring of City at the negotiating table, but we’re satisfied that Messi plying his trade in Turin isn’t completely impossible.
As a result, forgive us, because we can’t resist putting our tinfoil hats on and speculating what a Juventus XI would look like with both Messi and Ronaldo going into the 2020/21 season.
