£200m Barcelona star should switch clubs…
The agent of Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, Mino Raiola, has criticised Lionel Messi’s representatives over not seeing the Barcelona star move clubs, according to the Daily Express.
The Argentine forward has been linked with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United in a move worth up to £200m in recent times, but a move has failed to materialise despite whispers that the player is unhappy with life at the Nou Camp.
Messi has spent his entire career so far with Barca, becoming established as one of the best players of all time in a sensational few years of record-breaking and trophies gallore.
Still, Raiola feels the 27-year-old would become a better player for moving clubs, and has appeared to slam his agent for not arranging for him to be signed by Premier League clubs or other European giants.
“If he had been my client I would have made him change teams at least four times,” Raiola said.
“Not for money, because he would have earned many chances at extensions but because he would have improved.”
Raiola also represents Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has been known for moving around a great deal in his career so far.
