According to TeamTalk and various other sources today, Messi is now ready to try to help Ronaldinho by hiring a team of lawyers and paying as much as €4million to get the retired star out of prison…

If accurate, this is a truly heartwarming gesture from Messi, who must clearly still hold Ronaldinho in high regard.

The pair played together briefly at Barca when Messi was still coming through as a youngster, while Ronaldinho was perhaps the best footballer on the planet at that time.

The Argentine maestro is now one of the biggest names in the game, but it’s clear he’s a class act off the pitch too!
