Manchester United will always have a mountain of wealth at their disposal, due to the pure size of the club. However, that doesn’t always mean they have the pulling power to sign whoever they want; That won’t stop them targeting the best, though.
According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United and Jose Mourinho are lining up a shock move for Barcelona’s greatest ever player, Lionel Messi.
Sportsmail say that Manchester United have made a couple of approaches for the Argentinian over the last few weeks, to gauge whether or not Barcelona would contemplate parting with the 28-year old.
They also add that the move is much more likely to happen before the 2017/18 season, providing Champions League football is on offer at Old Trafford.
Honestly, this just seems a tad too far. It feels like Lionel Messi will never move away from the Camp Nou. He loves it there, the fans adore him and the club win pretty much everything.
Take this one with a pinch of salt for now…
