It seems an impossible dream but it’s one that many possess.

Watching Lionel Messi week-in, week-out, tearing defences apart across the country.

Could Messi move to the Premier League?Unfortunately, it’s never going to happen – is it?

Well, it actually appears there’s a lot more to the tale. With Messi currently experiencing the entire weight of Spain’s taxation lawyers on his shoulders, the Argentine superstar is growing increasingly unhappy with life on the continent.

So much so that The Daily Express state Messi is undertaking English lessons, which they say has put Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal on alert. All this comes from Spanish football expert Guillem Balague, a man who said earlier this week that Messi has never been closer to an exit from Barcelona.

“He’s never been closer to leaving Barcelona, he is thinking about it. He has heard from Sergio Aguero and Cesc Fabregas how wonderful England and the Premier League is. There’s an attraction there for a new challenge.” “He’s maturing, he wants to imagine himself in England and he watches the Premier League. He’s learning English in case he needs it. He is preparing for that possibility.”

Arsenal unsuccessfully made a move in 2003, when they signed Cesc Fabregas, whilst Chelsea and Manchester United have had their name thrown into the ring. You’d expect, should Messi leave Barcelona, Manchester City would declare their interest as well.

Therefore, it appears Lionel Messi genuinely wants a move to the Premier League at some stage but the problem, as always, would be financing such a move. Securing the player, tying him to a contract and everything else would cost a record amount of money- and it’s a big risk to take, even with a guaranteed star like Messi.
