“Messi’s future will have an influence because they are best friends.”
“There is a lot of brotherly love between them; they are inseparable, always together.”
Messi’s decision sparked a transfer battle between Europe’s rich list, with Manchester City; United; Chelsea; PSG and Inter Milan showing interest in the Argentine superstar.
