Stop Messi Around!

I'm sure many of you couldn't give a hoot, but the uncertain future of the best football player in the world certainly appeals to me. Rumours are surfacing he may go to Man City. Personally, I don't think that will ever happen. Messi has stated on numerous occasions he'd prefer not to live in the U.K. If he doesn't stay at Barcelona, I can see him following Ronaldo's footsteps (no pun) to the Italian league. Or, can the PSG monarchy tempt him with croissants and snails?

So my question is (if you care) where will the Messi-ah of modern football end up? And, does he have anything left to give?

*If you're not interested, like Charny says...DON'T READ IT! :lol:

He’s off to the Central Coast Mariners or Melbourne Victory. Wants to live in Australia apparently.

The above is bullshit.

Read so much bullshit in newspapers today that I thought I’d join in.

I’m enjoying it.

I think he will go, god knows where, he once said he loves the game and its not about the money so I say prove it, go to Albion Rovers.

My money would be on him joining Pep Guardiola at Man City, almost nailed on certainty.

I can’t see him being a success here in the PL if he comes.

It’s much faster and tougher than Spain and I can see him getting man-marked out of games with some rough treatment.

PSG seems more likely with the money and a weaker league to ease him into retirement and to protect his legacy.

I don’t think there’s enough money in French football to make his signing viable. Man City are one of the very few clubs in the world who can afford to pay the £500m rumoured to be the total cost of a 2yr Messi deal.
