For all what Ronaldo is worth, I think we can all agree (Real Madrid fans and Barcelona fans) that Messi is just in a class of his own. His ability to perform to insane levels in big games is something Ronaldo has never matched and probably can never match.
However, Ronaldo has given Messi a run for his money in terms of consistency and putting away medium-hard opponents both in the league and the Champions League.
Now, we know Real Madrid is offering Ronaldo a deal worth 150 million which I guess the Portuguese is going to take without thinking too deeply about it. 90 percent of the clubs who play football on the face of this earth would form whole squads for that amount of money but anyway.
Real Madrid needs Messi. Every team needs Messi. Barcelona is not half the team when Messi is not on the field destroying defenders almost in every game (almost).
Perez is someone who is known throughout the footballing world to pull off ridiculous deals. The deal for Messi, I think, would be the deal of the century if Perez can pull it off.
Messi does not want to leave Barcelona. Most of the time.
Perez mostly is not deterred by these obstacles such as player not wanting to move or club not wanting to sell or player’s parents being a pain the back.
Here are 3 ways I think Real Madrid can at least try to sign Messi in the near future:
- Offer Barcelona insane money and player deal. Exchange with them any player but Ronaldo because that would defeat the purpose of signing Messi.
- Take advantage of any situation where Messi might be unappeased with Barcelona management. Fill his ear through someone. Anyone. As kiddish as that might sound, I have always found that filling someones ears always as an effect. Gradually everyone breaks.
- Make an offer to him (personally) or his parents that cannot be refused (Godfather style). Perez has sown time and time again that he knows how to talk to people.
Just try anything and everything that might convince Messi to at least Barcelona, that would solve half the problem. I think Messi is a player who would feel bad himself about not playing for Real Madrid at least once in his career.
What do you guys think? Should Real Madrid go after Messi? After all, he is the greatest player of his generation.
