He is 33, and no need to wait on his current contract to end. Make a bid for him. I think he will be looking for another challenge now and will want out. No reason why we shouldnt be in the mix.Obviously would be good to see Messi in the Premier League but are we going to pay £500k a week for a 34 year old when his contract expires? I think if he was to leave he would honour his contract to the end of next season and then head off. Can’t see us going for him in the slightest though.
He may decide he wants to part of another rebuild at Barca - I think it’s more likely he stays there for the remainder of his career. Maybe forge a year or two in the MLS in a couple of years.
It would probably make us instant title challengersNow is not the time he’s declining he earns about €1m a week we are trying to build something young and full of energy do we don’t want to put something old into that.
I mean you could stand him out on the right of the front 3 and just let him weave his magic but I’m not sure it’s the right way to go.

Well, if its Hollywood movies your after over us signing a player who would never have previously been accessible thats a different matter.Fair shout but it would be a bit RVP a one season shot to nail the title because Messi is a fading force. You’d need your other 2 forwards to do his pressing etc for him.
I don’t really want to see Utd building around 1 player it makes you to vulnerable longer term I want to see us continue to build a team which is what ole looks to be doing.
I’d actually love to see Messi go to Juve I’d love to see him and Ronaldo play together both accept age has caught them but work together to get one final CL title. It would be very Hollywood movie
It’s actually the other way around. Reports are Ronaldo will go to Barcelona.
Isn't Busquets over 100 years old now and one of the many reasons Barca have been poor this years?Busquets is the man I’d be in for.
I think Messi is a more humble character than you give him credit forIsn't Busquets over 100 years old now and one of the many reasons Barca have been poor this years?
As for Messi, jesus, it would be like having the devil incarnate back at OT after Jose. He'd be saying he wants the team to do this, that, Ole clean my boots and I want a new keeper. No No No
