Mauricio Pochettino: “Messi can go anywhere he likes”

Lionel Messi is ardent to quit Barcelona and the ex-Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino says he’d flourish wherever he plays.

According to Mauricio Pochettino, Wantaway Barcelona forward Lionel Messi is strong enough to be the best player in any league he chooses and can “go anywhere he likes”.

Last week Messi made Barca known about his plans to depart the club and allegedly thinks that after triggering a clause allowing him to end his contract, he will pass on a free transfer.

However, Barca and LaLiga believe that the €700million release clause in his deal is still intact and will have to be met in full or a transfer fee will have to be agreed with any potential suitor to move on to the six-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Manchester City being the favorites to sign the Argentine and Messi’s father and agent Jorge met with president Josep Maria Bartomeu on Wednesday to discuss a possible departure.

Previously, Pochettino had been linked to Barca’s role as head coach and is expecting his countryman to have the final say on his future.

“Anything can happen. Messi will play wherever he wants – in Spain or the Premier League. He’s ready to be the best in any league,” Pochettino told Argentine outlet Ole.
