Premier League

Ten dream players Messi could pair with if he leaves Barcelona

10.ROMETU MENAMA LUKAKU BOLIGOLI (INTER MILAN).

Lukaku is a Belgian professional footballer who currently plays as a striker for Inter Milan.

The world cup runner up and Belgium’s all time top goal scorer would make a beautiful pair with Messi.


9. PAUL LABILE POGBA (MANCHESTER UNITED)

The attacking midfielder, defensive midfielder and deep- lying playmaker has already solidified himself a star at a tender age of 27.

The French midfielder is a former world cup winner and known for his assists.

If Messi decided to venture into Old Trafford, he’d be constantly fed the ball and we all know Messi can finish.


8. HARRY KANE (TOTTENHAM).

Harry Kane is a gifted professional footballer who captains the England national team and serves as a striker for English premier league Tottenham. The 26 year old has an impressive stat of 142 goals, 45% accuracy, 20 assists, 2 golden boots and 5 player of the month award.

As captain of both England national team and Tottenam Hotspur, he is a known role model, a prolific goal scorer with an innate ability to link play. 

If Messi were to team with such a gifted player, it would turn the above -average team to a deadly one.

7. SERGIO AGUERO (MANCHESTER CITY).

If Messi ever went to Manchester city, he would definitely be paired with their biggest star, Ageuro.

With 180 goals, 46 assists and 41% accuracy, 7 player of the month award, 4 premier league championships and a golden boot, Aguero has solidified himself as a top star at a young age of just 32. The addition of Messi to Manchester city would basically make the Etihad side a monster.

Just imagine a squad consisting of Sergio Aguero, Kelvin De bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, David Silva, Raheem sterling and Lionel Messi.

6. GARETH FRANK BALE (REAL MADRID).

The incredibly handsome 31 year old is a winger for the Spanish club Real Madrid.

The left foot striker holds an impressive record of scoring 10 goals in forty matches.

His spectacular striking distance, swerving free kicks and ability to get past defenders with ease has put him in a league of his own.

A union between himself and Lionel Messi would be nothing short of spectacular.

5. ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC (INTER MILAN).

There is a reason why the lion is regarded as one of the best strikers of his generation.

He is known to be confident and a bragger, it could be as a result of his 540 goals, 31 trophies, 11 golden boots, 5 world cup appearances etc, the list is endless.

If Messi ever teamed up with Ibrahimovic, they would basically carve through every other team.

4. NEYMAR DA SILVA SANTOS JUNIOR (PSG)

 The Brazilian star at just 28 is considered to be the best player in the world. 

With 322 goals, 89% penalty conversion rate, 52 assists and 2 world cup appearances, Neymar is one of the most recognizable names in soccer.

He and Messi have some sort of master-disciple relationship. If the two were ever to join forces, it would nothing short of a PANDEMIC.

3. MOHAMED SALAH (LIVERPOOL).

PFA players’s player of the year, FIFA Puskas award, Premier league golden boot, African player of the year, premier league player of the month, CAF Africa’s finest XI, FWA footballer of the year, BBC African footballer of the year, should I go on?

The Egyptian is a beast on the football field. If Messi were to go to Liverpool, the entire premier league would be shaking because he would be joining the ranks of 

Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Virgil Van Dijk etc under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp. It all sounds scary to me.

2. ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI (BAYERN MUNICH).

Popularly known as lewanGOALski, is the Poland national captain who plays for Bayern Munich.

 At 31 years, his statistics stand at 249 goals in 300matches, champion’s league winner, Bundesliga cup winner, Germany cup winner and an average of 1.18 goals per match.

Pairing Messi and Lewandowski, is equivalent to paring Thanos and the infinity gauntlet. They would be invincible.

1. CHISTIANO RONALDO (JUVENTUS).

Ronaldo and Messi are unarguably the modern GOATs of football.

The total statistics between two of them are 1421 goals, 557 assists, 62 awards and 11 Ballon d’or.

They are best if kept apart but if Messi and Ronaldo ever played together.

All they would need to win any match against any team is themselves and a keeper and even with that, matches would end at half time.
