Wayne Rooney settles never-ending Lionel Messi-Cristiano Ronaldo debate

Wayne Rooney says Lionel Messi would be capable of landing a seventh Ballon d'Or if he left Barcelona for Manchester and linked up with either United or City.

I know he's getting older but he's a player who no one has seen before, says Wayne Rooney on Messi. And if Liverpool get Thiago from Bayern Munich, I think it is done.

Since Lionel Messi told Barcelona chiefs that he wants to leave, the club's fans in Spain have been protesting that the Catalans' board under Bartomeu must keep the Argentine.

"I think Chelsea with the new signings will need possibly a year to get everyone on the same song sheet, so I do think it is between City and Liverpool".

But Rooney, who is now filling a player-coach role at Derby County, believes Messi can also win the Premier League Best Player of the Season playing alongside Man City's Kevin De Bruyne at Etihad or Man United's Bruno Fernandes at Old Trafford.

Spanish midfielder Thiago has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield both before and after helping Bayern Munich to a sixth Champions League triumph during the season-ending mini-tournament in Lisbon.

Manchester United legend, Rooney, has now revealed he would not mind Messi joining Manchester City, Manchester United's rivals, if it meant him coming to England. Messi has everything - he can create goals, score goals, dictates the game, and is the best player of all time.

Former Red Devils captain Rooney thinks Messi would thrive if he moved to either of the Manchester clubs, insisting the 33-year-old is a "different level" even to his former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo.

"He's one of the only players I have sat there and watched and been in awe".

Messi sent shockwaves through the football world with the recent revelation that he wants to leave Barcelona, the six-time Ballon d'Or victor having become frustrated with life at Camp Nou under the stewardship of Josep Maria Bartomeu.

"He's the best player of all time and if he can come to the Premier League, I think whichever team it is - and I do believe it's only Manchester City or Manchester United that can sign him..."

Messi has scored 634 goals for Barcelona, the only club he has played for in his professional career, having been there since he was 13.
