The Manchester City striker suggests that the Argentine superstar could "get bored" of La Liga and would not be surprised if Messi decided to try his luck in England.
Messi has carved out a reputation as one of the game's greatest players ever with his remarkable performances for the Liga giants over the past decade, scoring more than 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 join the Liga exodus to the Premier League should he ever decide to leave Camp Nou.
"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."
Messi signed a two-year contract extension earlier this year that binds him to Barcelona until 2018.
