Football fans react as Lionel Messi urges Kylian Mbappe to choose Real Madrid as he deserves a ‘winning project’.
Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi have been great friends and foes. The two titans of world football are at the peak of their careers. As they parted ways at the end of the season, it is safe to say that there is mutual respect between the two. So it would be suited for the senior to advise the talented youngster on his future.
Kylian Mbappe is considering his exit from Paris Saint Germain. While the 24-year-old has publicly said that wants to stay another year, it is evident that PSG will never let him leave for free. This has started an entertaining debate on where should the World Cup winner move next.
The clubs that are being linked to Kylian Mbappe are obviously Real Madrid and some suggest Manchester United.
Lionel Messi was recently asked if he’d advise a club to Mbappe. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner encouraged the Frenchman to join Real Madrid if not Barcelona.
“I prefer that you go to Barca. But if you want to go to Madrid, do it, you deserve a real winning project.”
Lionel Messi’s comments have sparked controversy amongst Spanish fans. While the Catalans blame him to be a traitor, Madrid fans claimed that even Messi knows which club is bigger.
One fan wrote,
“Messi agree that madrid is clear of varcelona”
While another said,
“This is Barkalona’s greatest ever player??”
Here are the best reactions from Twitter,
Lionel Messi was en route to join Barcelona after his contract expired at PSG. But since Barcelona miserably failed to improve their financial state, the Argentine chose David Beckham’s MLS club Inter Miami.
The World Cup winner is set to move to the United States, after vacation.
