Messi Rates Wazza & Gazza

Lionel Messi has grown accustomed to being mentioned as the player his fellow professionals would most like to play with.

But La Pulga Atomica also has his favourites outside of Barcelona: Wayne Rooney and Gareth Bale.

Both Premier League stars have been linked to transfers away of late, with Rooney thought by some pundits to have become surplus to requirements at Manchester United, while Bale is generally believed to have outgrown Tottenham Hotspur.

It’s not impossible to imagine either player strutting his stuff at the Camp Nou.

This season in particular, Barca could have made do with Rooney’s stellar foraging upfront. While Bale’s attacking midfield athleticism would provide a different kind of cut and thrust to the Blaugrana’s typical probing artistry.

And Messi says that he would enjoy the chance to play with Rooney and Bale for Barcelona.

"Wayne Rooney and Gareth Bale are both great players - they are doing so well for their clubs - and I always want to play with the best players,” the little Argentine superstar said at the opening of a museum where his bountiful trophies and awards are displayed.

"I have to be careful what I say, because I can't see them leaving their teams soon," he added.

“But of course I want to play with the best players."
