Argentina’s Lionel Messi: ‘Higuain is one of the best strikers in the world, I’d love if he joined me at Barcelona’ [Video]
A Lionel Messi press conference is a rare enough event, one where something of any real interest is said even more so.
So it was a surprise to hear Messi answering an honest club question about his international teammate Gonzalo Higuain at an Argentina press conference today, instead of simply pleading the Fifth.
Asked about the rumour linking El Pipita with a move from Napoli to Barcelona, Messi had no problem replying about a player he enjoys a fruitful partnership with the Albiceleste.
‘Obviously that would be great if it happened. Pipita (Higuain) is one of the best strikers in the world, I’d love it if he joined me at Barcelona’.
Bartomeu, you know what to do.
