Lionel Messi is now open to a move to Premier League after repeated harassments by tax authorities in Spain while Arsenal is the Argentine’s preferred destination for a life of never-ending luxury in London. As soon as the news came out, social media reacted hilariously trolling the transfer rumour
Arsenal fans would be sad to hear the wage that Messi demanding. The Star reports, Messi would consider a move if his wage is accepted which is said to be ridiculous £18 million a year excluding tax, that means around £2.4m a month before deductions.
There could be a possibility as has been seen in many other transfer rumours in the past, the Barcelona superstar is simply pushing for a new contract with the Catalans or may be encouraging these huge offers to find out what’s his exact transfer value right now.
But, if you are Arsenal fan then what’s the harm in dreaming?
Messi wants to sign for Arsenal? Sure he does, just like I want to be President of the United States.

Messi to Arsenal is kind of rumour you put in to fill the void of a messy divorce on a Monday afternoon.

Messi playing for Arsenal is about as likely as me playing for Barcelona.

Messi to Arsenal? For £600k? Ffs seeing him in a Meccabi Tel Aviv shirt has a higher probability than that.
