The Blaugrana are said to be interested in signing Ajax Amsterdam and Netherlands midfielder Frenkie de Jong, and during a recent interview, the highly-rated 21-year-old openly stated that he would like to be on the same team sheet as Messi at some point in the future.

"If you end up at a superior club, you will play with world-class players all over the pitch," he said, according to Sport.

"But for me, honestly, I would like to play with Messi one day."
