'We Are In Talks With FC Barcelona Over Lionel Messi!'

By Kurt Buckerfield - Aug 02, 2018 08:26 AM @KurtLaduma

A club president in Europe has jokingly stated that his club, who were recently beaten to a signing by FC Barcelona, are in talks with the Catalan club over the sale of superstar Lionel Messi.

Simeone Clarifies His Messi-Ronaldo Comments

Roma recently lost their chance to sign Brazilian starlet Malcom, who made a surprising U-turn on a move to Italy and chose to join Barca instead at the last minute.

The Italian side were believed to be upset about the situation, with their director of football, Monchi, even saying that Roma refused to accept the Blaugrana's apology for hijacking the transfer.

The club's president, James Pallotta, was recently asked about how he thinks new Juventus signing Cristiano Ronaldo will fare in Serie A, and he joked that Roma are preparing a move for a superstar of their own.

"He is a fantastic player, but in Italy it will be more difficult for him," he said, according to Il Messaggero.

"Will we buy a top player? We are already talking to Barcelona about Messi."

Monchi then discussed the strength of the current team.

"On paper, we have the best team we have ever had under me. Patrik Schick and Justin Karsdorp are back, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Cengiz Under have been developing for a year," he added. 

"Javier Pastore, Ivan Marcano, Bryan Cristante and (Justin) Kluivert are all great signings. The team has been built and organised to score more.

"We have a very good team and we will see what happens."

@Sanchez Alexis Ronaldo left Madrid because they weren't prepared to offer him more money, not because he wanted to carry juventus, juventus have been dominating serie A for years without Ronaldo, Messi on the other hand is well taken care of at barca, why would he leave, why would barca let the rare and once in a lifetime talent go, 5 time balon d'or winner, barca style is built on Messi, he initiate all moves, has most assists, score more goals, clear u haven't watched barca play and you don't know your soccer

Unlike CR7, Messy will not leave Barca becoz all he knows is to hide btwn Barca players in order to get recognition. If it weren't so, he would have scored at least 3 or 4 goals during the World cup. Ronaldo will still shine at Juventus simply because hez able to carry the team all by himself.
