Yesterday, waking up to the sensational news that Lionel Messi had handed in a transfer request, at Barcelona, we felt it our duty to cover the situation.
Our article – manchester-united-could-complete-the-biggest-transfer-of-many-a-transfer-window – inferred that, already, Manchester United were being linked with the acquisition of the Argentine superstar.
However, some 24 hours later, it would appear the situation has changed.
According to The Express, Manchester United have the financial capability to pursue the 33-year-olds signature but, instead, would prefer to continue their pursuit of their main summer transfer target, Jadon Sancho.
Our previously mentioned article also contained a poll asking which simply asked:
Should Manchester United Sign Lionel Messi?
The response implied that 65% of those that voted were in favour of the signing with the remaining 35% against.
But, with it looking as if Messi will not become a regular feature at Old Trafford, matters could be set to take a turn for the worse.
Our friends at ” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>The Sun, are reporting that Lionel Messi’s dad is already in England and is set to discuss a two-year deal that would see his son join Manchester City!
Which leads me back to the all-important decision supposedly made by the Old Trafford hierarchy and their preference to pursue Jadon Sancho:
Who Would You Prefer United To Sign?
