Did Messi Ask Barca Bosses To Sign Ex-Real Star?

Did Lionel Messi Ask FC Barcelona Bosses To Sign Ex-Real Madrid Star?

By Keegan Kruger - Aug 29, 2017 09:00 PM @KeeganKruger

A shock report has claimed that FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has reportedly asked the Blaugrana board to sign a former Real Madrid star.

Click through the gallery above to see some stars who played for both Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.

According to Diario Gol, the 30-year-old has suggested that the club signs his Argentina teammate Angel Di Maria before the window closes.

The report claimed that the former Benfica winger is not the Spanish side's primary transfer target at the moment, but things might change to appease Messi. 

In the past couple of weeks, the Catalan giants have focused all their attention on sealing a deal for Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho, but although the player has made it clear he wants to move, the Merseyside club has so far refused to sell up.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu is apparently aware that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is frustrated with life at the Camp Nou and is hoping to please all parties by signing both players. 

The Spanish giants are also hoping that the signing of the 29-year-old will prompt Messi to sign his contract extension, which was offered to him two months ago. Barca announced they had agreed terms with Messi and that he will sign his new contract before the new campaign starts. However, the Argentine still is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal.

Super-Agent In Barca To Finalise Di Maria Move?

Di Maria spent four years in La Liga with Real Madrid before joining Manchester United and then moving on to Paris Saint-Germain.

Do you think Di Maria would be a good signing for Barcelona? Have your say in the comments section below.

Messi shud be careful with his fellow countrymen coz he has failed to produce the same spark wen surrounded by countrymen in the national team.better for him if he plays with spanish,brazilians and other nationals.Also this Di Maria failed at Man U so we cant garrant he wil deliver at Barce.Neymer proved himself at Santos,national level, Barce and now he z proving again at PSG so Neymer garranties u deliverance of goods unlike Di Maria.
