Join Arsenal, Fans Beg Lionel Messi After Barcelona Exit

Some fans of Arsenal Football Club are desirous to have Lionel Messi join their club after Barcelona announced that the Argentine will leave the club.

Shortly after Messi’s departure was announced, Arsenal began to trend on Twitter.

This was further fuelled by a tweet by an Italian journalist who specializes in football, Fabrizio Romano, who hash-tagged Arsenal while announcing Messi’s departure from Barcelona.

Lionel Messi ended his 20-year career with Barcelona after the Argentine superstar failed to reach agreement on a new deal with the club.

Thursday’s stunning announcement marked a new turnaround in a long-running saga where Barcelona had appeared certain to keep Messi, widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time.

He had tried to leave last August as a free agent but the expectation was that he would remain with the Spanish giants for another five years, until 2026 when he would be 39.

The 34-year-old signed his first contract with Barcelona in 2000 on a napkin when he was just 13.

However, he had been a free agent since June 30 when his old agreement expired.

Apart from the fans clamouring to have Messi, earlier reports indicated that the Barcelona legend was ‘tempted’ to join Arsenal back in 2003.

One of the fans, @funny_dagreat, said, “Messi, Come home. Come to Arsenal.”

@arsenalinside_ tweeted, “You’re always welcome at the Emirates, Leo Messi… we’ll give you VIP treatment and your family can sit in the VIP section every game!”

“I wish Arsenal can pull this once in a lifetime stunt #Messi,” @TobbyGMichael said.

kofi Inkoom @MrInkoom begs, “@Arsenal, please sign Messi.”

@mustapha_were said, “Messi to @Arsenal, here we go!”

@Mark_A03 added, “Leo Messi should join @Arsenal and play voluntary soccer for the club to prove to us that he’s indeed the GOAT.”

@TheSalaudeen begged, “Messi, come to Arsenal Palms up together.”

@kaks_lamar said, “If Messi is indeed the GOAT the perfect way to show that is to join arsenal and bring that premier league title.”

With a pleading emoji, @miss_iyy tweeted, “Just imagining Messi coming to Arsenal pleading face.”
