Questions about Lionel Messi’s future at FC Barcelona enlivened the transfer window last summer. When the Argentine finally announced that he would stay in Spain, his opponents for the La Liga title would also be happy with the decision.
Lionel Messi is still being emulated in Spain. While he announced his intention to leave Barcelona last August, the six-time Argentine Ballon d’Or had finally reversed his decision not to compete against the club that had given him everything. Although Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City softened his eyes in the off-season, the 33-year-old has decided to play in the Blaugrana jersey for a 17th season. Barcelona will therefore not be weakened by the loss of their main player. However, some players from Real Madrid, Barcelona’s big rivals for the title, have also said they are happy to continue playing against him.
“I like to play against the best”
In an interview with Onda Cero El Transistor, Real Madrid player Marco Asensio returned to the soap opera Lionel Messi. “I didn’t care if Messi left or stayed. If he stayed it would be better for Barcelona. I like to play against the best. “Anyway, we’re happy that Lionel Messi stayed in Barcelona because of the advantages of the Spanish championship. The next Classico between Real Madrid and Barcelona will take place on October 24th at Camp Nou.
