In the midst of how complicated the last few weeks have been for Leo Messi at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) both with the board of directors and with the fans, one of his friends and teammates such as the Emiliano ‘Dibu’ Martínez, has opened the positions for him at Aston Villa in the Premier League.
In an interview with ESPN, the goalkeeper of the Argentine national team, was asked for his opinion on the criticism that ‘La Pulga’ has received from the PSG fans that he has whistled for him whenever he receives the ball during the last few games and they even went so far as to march to the club’s offices to request his departure.
Given this, Dibu suggested a way out to the captain of the ‘Albiceleste’: “If they whistle at Messi I would bring him to (Aston) Villa. Come here, we’ll feed you mates, I make barbecue every weekend, I make people make little flags for you, and that’s it, you have a good time. I cut my salary, we do our best”.
Emiliano Martínez is one of the top figures of the Villano team led by the Spanish coach Unai Emery, as well He is one of the best goalkeepers of the current Premier League season, in which he is one of the least scored in the tournamentwhich has led his team to keep fighting to qualify for European competitions.
However, It seems almost impossible for Messi to reach Villa Park since the team manages a budget well below the big ones in Europe and what the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner will surely earn.
In addition, the still PSG player has a range of offers open from different clubs and leagues for the next campaign, among them, a possible ‘last dance’ with FC Barcelona, an alleged offer of $500 million per season from Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal and another suitor in MLS such as David Beckham’s Inter Miami, according to reports.
