UEFA Champions League

Opinion: Barcelona must sign this player if they want Messi to remain at the club.

There's been a grapevine that Prestigious Spanish club, football Club Barcelona are launching an attempt to sign two world-class players in a bid to convince lionel Messi to remain at the club. The two world-class players are said to be Manchester United star Paul Pogba and Bayern Munich star David Alaba.

You would recall, that few months ago Messi declared that he wanted to leave the club, due to the way they were humilated by Bayern Munich in the Uefa Champions league, Quarter-final last season. Messi complained bitterly about how he was deceived by the club's President despite his attempts at convincing him to sign some world-class players.

Barcelona failed in their bid in getting their former player, Neymar, back at the club and this further fuelled Messi's anger at the club.

However, it looks like the club are really looking for suitable options in other to keep their greatest player at the club. Although Pogba is a good player, I don't really see him as someone who would fit in with Barcelona's style. On the other hand Alaba is a player whose experience as a defender will be greatly needed in reinforcing and strengthening the team.

Instead of signing Pogba, Barcelona should pursue Lautaro Martinez instead. Lautaro's intelligent movement and positioning makes him stand out. He is lethal in attack, with a brilliant eye for goal. He has the ability to lead the attack (super No.9) and can easily combine with Messi.

Lautaro is a better option and if Barcelona are willing to convince their talisman to stay, then this is the best and ideal way.
