Barcelona have been shocked by a sensational statement released by their star player, Lional Messi, stating that he 'dreams' of playing for Manchester United.
The Argentine, nicknamed 'The Flea', is believed to be ready to hand in a transfer request to force a move away from the Catalan giants and force a move to England, Manchester United, the self proclaimed 'Biggest Club on the Planet' being his 1st choice destination.
"Of course I know England is a great place to play football and Manchester United are a fantastic club" he told The Spoof.
"It is a club which I love and hope to be a part of soon, I do not see a future at Barcelona and I do not believe I will remain here beyond this summer. I wish very much to be a Manchester United player by next season, to play at Old Trafford is a dream and it will mark the realisation of a long term goal of mine."
Sources in Spain confirm that talk between Barcelona and Manchester United are on going.
