'Lionel Messi could have played for Real Madrid instead of Barcelona'

'Lionel Messi could have played for Real Madrid instead of Barcelona'

Messi joined Barcelona in 2001 at the age of 13.

Messi has won eight La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns with Barcelona.

Gaggioli said Messi could have played for Real Madrid. His parents could not afford his treatment, which was 900 Dollars per month and then FC Barcelona came in putting their faith in his envious talent.

Messi, 29, has one year left in his contract with Barcelona but reports in Spain claim the Argentinean is close to signing a new deal with the blaugrana.

The Argentine, who has mesmerised everyone with his skill, drew special praise from fans all across social media, be it just fans or groups dedicated to the sport.

A season, in which he was adjudged the FIFA Player of the year and won the Ballon d'Or for the first time, an honour he would go on to win for a record five times.

Imagine Lionel Messi playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo in a Real Madrid T-shirt in front of a packed Santiago Bernabeu.

Spain's public prosecutor has agreed to substitute Lionel Messi's suspended 21-month prison sentence for tax fraud with a fine, Spanish news agency, EFA reported on Friday. "But I was about to live in Madrid", Gaggioli said.

'When I saw him at the airport, I thought that boy could not be a footballer, because he was too small and skinny'. "That's life, those are the details", Gaggioli was quoted by saying Globoesporte.

'I did not have a good impression.

Gaggioli said: "For my partners in Argentina and for me, considering we were the ones who delivered one of the best in the world to Barca, the acknowledgement on their part was not very good".
