Messi Tells Barcelona To Sign Premier League Striker Instead Of Griezmann


Lionel Messi reportedly wants Barcelona to make a marquee signing in the summer.

The Spanish club clinched the La Liga title and also have the opportunity to win the Copa del Rey next week, but they missed out on the Champions League crown after their semi-final exit at the hands of Liverpool.

Frenkie de Jong is set to arrive in the summer and fellow Ajax teammate and captain Matthijs de Ligt is expected to sign for the La Liga champions, but the Barça captain wants the club to splash out on a world-class forward from the Premier League.

According to Fox Sports, the 31-year-old Argentine forward has told the Barcelona uppers to sign Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane in the summer.

The 25-year-old England captain has solidified his position as one of the best strikers in the world and he could secure his first piece of silverware with Spurs if they beat Liverpool in the Champions League final.

With questions raised over Luis Suárez’s fitness — not to mention that he isn’t getting any younger — Kane is seen as a viable replacement for him going forward.
