Lionel Messi is coming off a rough first season with Paris Saint-Germain, where the 35-year-old struggled to find his scoring boots. However, he did become more of a facilitator, but the Argentine is paid his high wages for scoring goals, which didn’t come.
As a result, some pundits are using the lack of goal production from last season to fire out some controversial takes. TalkSPORT pundit Danny Mills stated that he doesn’t think any of the Premier League top six would take Messi right now.
“Would you take Lionel Messi right now? Probably not…,” Mills said. “Man City? No. Liverpool? No. Spurs? I don’t think they would.”

These comments likely won’t bother Messi, but the Argentine should ponder using these remarks made by Mills and others like him to fuel him this upcoming season to display that he still has the goal-scoring capabilities.
Messi arrived sooner than he was scheduled to at the Camp des Lodges to begin preparations for the 2022-23 campaign, where the capital club will have a new manager at the helm in Christophe Galtier.
