Lionel Messi confirmed yesterday that he is to become a father and it has emerged that Catalan giants Barcelona are ready to make a contract offer for the 24 year old’s as yet unborn baby.
“I think it will be a boy,” Messi is quoted as saying by Ole. “We did not want to say anything because we never talk about our private life.
“But we were constantly asked about it, so we wanted to share our joy.”
The Nou Camp side will indeed hope that Messi’s offspring is indeed male as they ready to a bid for Lionel’s baby. Having already made advances for a talented Brazilian six year old Barcelona want to make sure they are ahead of the game with regards to the offspring of their star performer.
Indeed on countless occasions children of top players have gone on to replicate the success of their fathers, although clearly on occasion this has not proven the case, as evidenced by a certain Jordi Cruyff. However Barcelona are willing to make an offer nonetheless.
Ignacio Gomez, head of Barcelona’s Under-Two side, has stated that he can’t wait to see Messi junior at the club’s training complex at La Masia just in time for the 2014/15 season and has already assigned a shirt number in anticipation of his arrival.
Video evidence of Lionel Messi as a budding five year old (see below) goes to show just how inherent footballing ability can be and may well be catalyst for Barcelona’s interest.
As yet there has been no comment from Barcelona in relation to this speculation.
