1. Real Madrid

Real Madrid is a Spanish football club, a tough rival of Barcelona football club in the La liga. Although the club is the richest club in the world presently with a revenue of 796 Million Dollars, but surely Barcelona won't want to sell their best player to their league rival.

2. Manchester United

The England giant is presently the 3rd richest football club in world. Manchester United has a revenue of 795 Million dollars which shows they are absolutely in a strong position to battle for 2019 best football player in the world (Messi).

But Arsenal football club hardly spends money to get new players. A former manager of Arsenal would say instead of spending that much acquiring just a player, why not purchase 5 players.

Well, that was then. Arteta is a different manager with a different playing pattern and obviously a different mission.

The battle on which club will get Lionel Messi is definitely going to be an interesting one.

In my opinion, I think Arsenal football club will try their possible best to get him.
