With the regular MLS season having come to an end recently, a few high-profile stars from the division might seek loan moves until the next campaign begins.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been linked with a temporary move to Napoli in Italy, while Carlos Vela has also been tipped to explore this option, with Barca having been said to be interested in his signature in the past.

Asked recently if he would still consider a loan move to the Catalan giants, Vela said he would struggle to reject the opportunity to work and learn alongside Messi.
