The possibility of signing a player of this magnitude would be a dream come true for United fans. Adding Messi to a vibrant young attack would provide them with both quality and mentorship.

United have in recent times focussed on signing young players. The club have, however, showed that they are willing to bend it, as shown in the case of Odion Ighalo.
