Well, 2020 has thrown up another plot twist.

Lionel Messi has officially asked to leave Barcelona.

The thought of the one constant in the world changing is unsettling, but we’ve deliberated over where the greatest footballer to walk the planet could end up next …


Reunion with Pep?

Messi earns reportedly close to €1m a week, so it’s going to take a club with serious financial clout to be able to pull this deal off.

Manchester City are likely to be only one of a few clubs who could afford the 33-year-old and Pep Guardiola must be licking his lips at the thought of a reunion.

Messi wants one last Champions League trophy and we’re sure Pep can relate to that.


Getting the band back together

The MSN trio of Messi, Neymar and Luis Suárez was the best attacking line in Europe when Barcelona last lifted the Champions League in 2015.

Barça have been trying to get the band back together ever since Neymar left for Paris Saint-Germain in 2016. What if, two-thirds of the group join forces in Paris?

PSG seem to be getting closer and closer to that European title.


Fairytale ending

Messi started out in Argentina with Newell’s Old Boys at the age of 8 before leaving for La Masia.

Wouldn’t it be the picture book ending for him to return to Argentina to see out his playing career?

This is the option Barcelona would prefer the most, the one where he can’t come back to hurt them.


Messi v Ronaldo once again?

It feels as if the world has started to fall apart ever since Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid and was no longer in competition with Messi.

A move to Inter would reignite that contest, and the Serie A club have been linked with putting the work in on signing the Argentine for years.

The internet might lose it’s mind if this one happened.
