Messi wants Rooney at Barcelona
Monday 21 June 2010
Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi says that he would love to see England and Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney join at the Camp Nou in the future.
Argentina forward Messi thinks that few players have the class that Rooney possesses, which the South American believes would come to the fore with Barca.
He told the Daily Star: "It would be a dream to play with Rooney if Manchester United ever came to the point where they needed to sell him.
"I would personally go to the Barcelona president and ask that he be signed myself.
"There are always a handful of players in the world at any one time who can go down in the footballing history books.
"I don't know if I will ever play with him, but if he ever wants to leave, he is one of the few talents that can improve this Barcelona team."
