Messi teases for Rooney’s link with Barca!

Lionel Messi
has revealed he would love to see
Wayne Rooney
join Barcelona and believes he can go down as an all-time great.

Lionel Messi has often spoken highly of Wayne Rooney

Rooney
has come in for criticism at the World Cup as he has struggled to live
up to his pre-tournament billing as one of the potential stars of the
summer, but Messi says he would be delighted to play alongside the
England striker at Camp Nou.

"It would be a dream to play with
Rooney if Manchester United ever came to the point where they needed to
sell him," Messi said in the
Daily Star Sunday. "I would
personally go to the Barcelona president and ask that he be signed
myself.

"There are always a handful of players in the world at
any one time who can go down in the footballing history books. At the
moment, there are maybe (Cristiano) Ronaldo, Rooney, Xavi and one or two
more – but I can’t think of one that plays with the desire of Rooney.

"We
all know football players at the top level are blessed with high wages,
it’s no secret, but Rooney would play for €100-a-week. You can see the
fire in his eyes. It’s that fire which makes him the best of the best."
