Negredo: I could see Messi moving to England

The Manchester City striker suggests that the Argentine superstar could "get bored" of La Liga and would not be surprised if he switched to the Premier League in the future
Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo says that he could see Barcelona sensation Lionel Messi moving to the Premier League in the next few years.

Messi has carved out a reputation as one of the world's best players with his remarkable performances for the Primera Division giants over the last decade, scoring over 300 goals for the club and winning the Ballon d'Or on four occasions along the way.

Negredo, however, believes that the Argentina international might grow bored of playing in Spain in the coming years and has urged him to make the switch to England should he ever wish to leave Barcelona.

"I could see someone like Messi coming to England and following players like David Silva, Juan Mata, Santi Cazorla, David de Gea and myself. He could play well in any league in the world," said the Spaniard, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

"Maybe in two or five years he will get bored with La Liga, want a change and come over here.

"The Premier League is the best place to be for the world's top stars. Having been here for a few months, it is better than I thought it would be. Your expectations go up here."
