Messi open to Premier League move?  

Sunday, 10 May 2009

Lionel Messi has left the door open for a move to England in future after admitting: If I ever leave Barca it's the obvious destination. The Barcelona superstar insists he is happy at the Nou Camp and has no plans to quit in the near future - especially with a Champions League Final against Manchester United to look forward to.But the skilful Argentine - compared to Maradona by his Barca team-mate Thierry Henry this week -refuses to rule out the possibility of pulling on a United, Liverpool, Arsenal or Chelsea shirt in future.

"The Premier League and the Spanish leagues are the top two leagues in the world, I'm sure of that," he said.

"So it is normal for any professional that we like to play there. I know that several English clubs were interested in me in recent times, but at the minute I am content at Barcelona.

"However, it is logical that if you ever leave Barca, England might be a good destination."
