Lionel Messi (Messi) is an Argentine professional soccer player who plays for La Liga team Barcelona. He was born on June 24 1987 (33 years old). Messi is the captain for both Barcelona and the Argentina National Team. He plays in a forward position (mainly right wing). Messi is considered to be the best player in the world and has won a record of 6 Ballon d'Or. The Ballon d'Or is simply an award given to the best soccer player in the world. He has had one amazing career but has gotten older and people are starting to see a decrease in his game. Messi has also been with a bunch of different managers and was struggling to get into good form this year.
Messi has been with some of the best managers throughout his career. Pep Guardiola and Frank Rijkaard are only two of them. Both of these names have made a big impact in the past. Guardiola and Rikaard have both played for many big clubs such as Barcelona, Ajax and Roma. Their experience and coaching skills why Messi has become so good. These past couple years Messi's world class teammates have left him. A few of these are Xavi, Iniesta, Puyo and Ronaldinho. These players really fit the style of how Messi plays. I believe that Messi is having a hard time adjusting to the new and young generation of Barcelona players.
This hard time for Messi could be bad for Barcelona as Messi is looking for a new challenge. Different sources that I have read say that they will let Messi explore a possible transfer. Man City, Paris Saint- Gemain, Manchester United, Inter Milan, Inter Miami, Newell's Old boys, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Leeds and Real Madrid have been looking at bringing Messi to their clubs. The hardest part about teams pulling through this deal will be the price tag on Messi. The price for Messi might be a record breaker and will be hard for lower level teams to pay. My prediction, if he were to move, would be that he would transfer to the English premier league team, Man City. Whatever happens I hope the best for him and can't wait to watch him play in his new kit!
