Lionel Messi Refuses To Rule Out China Move
FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has reportedly refused to rule out a move to the Chinese Super League at some point in the future.
The 29-year-old is yet to sign a new deal with the Blaugrana, and has been linked with a move away from the Spanish giants in recent months.
The Argentine recently admitted he would like to retire at the Camp Nou, but added that there is a possibility he may be tempted to ply his trade in China one day.
"(Staying at Barca) is what I've always wanted, what I always dreamt of and what I always said I'd do," Messi told ESPN China.
"But I wouldn't say (moving to China) is impossible, no? No one can say that anything is impossible in football.
"Anything can happen (in football) but today I'll tell you – no, it hasn't crossed my mind."
Messi has made 585 appearances for Barcelona since breaking into the senior team, scoring 510 goals and assisting 231 further strikes.
