okay,you got me.Messi became the GOAT after WC (for me),overtaking Cristiano Ronaldo. I wanted to say that the "best player" debate was settled for me 16 years ago.Yet you get John Cross,Neville and Piers Morgan with their rettarted opinions.But I thought you said Messi became the GOAT when he won the WC!
I don't agree. In the end he will decide. However, whatever decision he makes we should be fine with it.Various new reports have him as wanting to go back to Barca for 25m a year. I think that's pretty admirable considering he is being offered around 400m a year in Saudi.
He obviously cares about money, most people on the planet do, but he is far from the green eyed monster some people like to portray him as.
Actually, that could be said of a lot of our players. Many of them have foregone money and made deferrals that simply haven't happened at other clubs and most here would not have agreed to themselves. Overall, I think as fans we have been rather unfair on them in this regard, always taking the most negative of intentions.
Make no mistake, if Messi doesn't end up here, it will be on the club and not him.
