Leo Messi is an enigma, someone who is a class on his own. However, he wasn’t always the legend he is today. He played under some of the greatest players in his time and learned a lot from them. Naturally, when you are a star, every fan wants to watch you play alongside other superstars of the game. Millions of fans around the world fantasize about their favorite players and Messi playing in the same team and it really makes for a wonderful dream. Let us take at some of the 5 players everyone wants to see to play with Lionel Messi.
1. Cristiano Ronaldo:
The two legends may be rivals on the pitch, playing for rival teams, but that doesn’t keep fans from fantasizing about what may happen if the two ended up playing in the same team. Apart from the natural clash of egos, and the potential turf war that may happen, we might as well get to watch some great football. Oh and one more thing, how would the two celebrate after scoring a goal? Surely that will melt the heart of millions of fans around the world.
2. Mesut Ozil:
While Ozil may not be the same player that he once was during his time at Real Madrid, it goes without saying that at the time everyone wanted to see the arguably greatest playmaker create some goals for the arguably greatest player. Unfortunately, it seems highly unlikely now, given the fact that Ozil now plays for Arsenal which does not plan on buying Messi (LOL?), and neither does Ozil show the form to be bought by Barcelona (again, LOL).
3. Paul Pogba:
One of the most brilliant players and considered by many to rise as a top player in the future, Pogba seems like the right player to provide Messi with the solid midfield necessary for him to go on and create problems for the opponent. Plus, it will be interesting to see the flamboyant French gel with the calm Argentinian.
4. Wayne Rooney:
Just the thought of it makes our hearts flip – Leo Messi playing at the theatre of dreams in a United Shirt, creating a pass for the English striker who goes on to score a goal. This does sound like a Nike advertisement, but if it becomes true, it would be like a real life fantasy. Rooney is the sort of aggressive player who would create space for a troublesome Messi and the combination would be too much for even the strongest defense in the world.
5. Antoine Griezmann:
The French striker has won many fans since his outstanding performances for Atletico left a major mark on the club’s season. There is no doubt about the fact that the boy is a wonderful mixture of pace, creativity and ball control – all factors which are Messi’s strong suit as well. The two are likely to gel together due to their similar penchant for creative passing and similar style of play as well.
