FC Barcelona – La Liga One of Argentine’s options this summer
Former Argentina forward Franco Jara, now playing for FC Dallas in the United States, has flirted with the idea of Lionel Messi arriving in MLS.
The Barcelona captain has a decision to make come the end of his contract at the Camp Nou in June, with a move stateside one of the options being speculated over.
“If he [Messi] comes to play [in MLS], I’d kiss his feet,” Jara told 90min. “It would be insane, a madness.
“Over the course of my career, when I was in the national team, I had the chance to share [the pitch] with players like them but having him face to face is totally different.
“[MLS] have brought in Zlatan [Ibrahimovic], [Gonzalo] Higuain… let’s hope [Messi] gets the opportunity.
“As much for Messi as for Cristiano [Ronaldo], it’s an opportunity to live outside of football, to be a normal person.
“Me, you, we like to go out to eat, go to the cinema, go to the supermarket to buy… and the United States offers that.”
