Messi Started Inquiring About a Move To Arsenal

Before signing a new contract with Barcelona two months ago, Lionel Messi was allegedly looking into a transfer to Arsenal.

The Argentine superstar eventually penned his extension with Barca in May having previously rejected fresh terms, following a row over bonus payments.

And Spanish newspaper Vozpopuli, who broke the news of Arsenal’s deal for Alexis Sanchez, says Messi was seriously considering a switch to the Emirates before sorting out an arrangement to stay at the Nou Camp.

The paper claims that Messi had spoken to close friend Cesc Fabregas about his time at Arsenal, and also sounded out other acquaintances about a switch to London.

Messi had chance to go to Arsenal when he was very young, and has always been an admirer of Arsene Wenger.
