Lionel Messi is without doubt one of the greatest ever footballers to ever play the game but can he truly be considered the greatest ever? Lionel Messi has been at Barcelona since he was just a young boy and, at the age of 25, he is just coming into the prime of his career.
But surely someone as talented as Lionel Messi would want to test himself in the best league in the world. How would Lionel Messi cope with an away day at Stoke in the middle of winter? The only way we would ever find out is if he was to move to the English Premier League.
His biggest rival at the moment is Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and the two are often compared to each other. Both players manage to score bags of goals every season in Spain but, while Lionel Messi has never played in the English Premier League, Cristiano Ronaldo has proven himself in the best league in the world.
Lionel Messi’s goalscoring record for Barcelona is unbelievable as he boasts 277 goals in 348 games for the club. But could Messi cut it in the English Premier League. Well we think he could but the fact of the matter is, that we will never get to find out, as Lionel Messi will never leave Barcelona.
Do you think Lionel Messi should leave Barcelona and test himself in the English Premier League?
