This outstanding footage proves Messi will destroy Premier League if he moves to England
Some people genuinely believe that Cristiano Ronaldo has the edge over Lionel Messi because, unlike the Barcelona superstar, he has proven himself in two different leagues.
Whereas Messi has spent his entire professional career to date at the Camp Nou, Ronaldo has flourished in both the Premier League and La Liga with Manchester United and Real Madrid respectively.
Some people even believe that Messi, arguably the greatest footballer of all time, would struggle to cut it in England’s top division.
Messi might not be the strongest player in the world but the idea that he’d struggle to perform against Premier League teams – yes, even Stoke City – is surely nonsense.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has demonstrated throughout his career that he can make any player look stupid with his unbelievable talent.

It shows Messi in action against various English clubs during his illustrious career – including Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal – and dominating with twists, turns, nutmegs, assists and goals.
