Brazil legend, Rivaldo, has claimed that Lionel Messi could end up making a sensational move to Juventus, to play alongside old rival Cristiano Ronaldo next summer.
This week, reports in Spain claimed Messi has halted contract talks and wants to see out his £500,000-per-week deal before leaving.
Messi is believed to be unhappy with the club’s hierarchy, following the sale of Arthur and failure to re-sign Neymar from PSG.
And Rivaldo claims a move to Turin is already being dreamed up, creating one of the most stunning attacks in football history.
“With all this speculation, I believe that some agents are already dreaming about a Messi-Ronaldo double at Juventus and how big it will be around the globe,” Rivaldo told Betfair.
“If that happens there would be a world “boom”, and I believe Juventus would quickly recover any investment on the Argentinian thanks to the boost they would get from visibility and marketing.
‘It would be historical to see both playing together and I’m sure many Juve sponsors would love to help financially, so, it’s also a possibility for Messi.”
