Yep, your read that right.
Struggling French side Angers SCO are attempting to scoop their Ligue 2 rivals by signing Lionel Messi.
Ok, so it’s not that Lionel Messi. But rather a 17 year old Cameroonian midfielder, whose full name happens to be Lionel Messi Nyamsi.
“I’ve had other offers but I think I’ll end up at Angers,” said the youngster, who currently plies his trade at Toulouse Fontaines.
“My greatest wish is to play alongside Leo Messi. I was born in Cameroon but I’m French. I would choose France.”

Did the 17 year old ‘just happen’ to be named Lionel Messi Nyamsi? Or did he by chance amend his middle name?
