Greenwood would welcome Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi

Barcelona captain Lionel Messi continues to be linked with a move away from Barcelona. 

Last week, reports emerged that Messi wants to leave Barcelona with the Argentine linked with a move to Manchester City. And Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood says he would welcome Messi in the Premier League, even if it meant he will join rivals City. 

"It would be amazing to even come up against him [Messi]," he told Sky Sports. 

"All young footballers know about Messi, so to be on the same pitch as him would be like another dream come true, not just for me but for everyone. To have someone that high-profile come to the Premier League would be a big thing." 

The 18-year-old was last week selected in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the forthcoming UEFA Nations League fixtures against Iceland and Denmark.
