Messi tells Barcelona: Forget Coutinho, sign this England star…!

Barcelona ace Lionel Messi is unhappy with their move for Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

Regardless of whether Neymar stays or leaves for PSG, Barca are pressing on with plans to sign Coutinho this summer.

However, Don Balon says Messi is unimpressed, particularly if Neymar is to stay. The Argentine doesn’t want to see Neymar’s power grow inside the locker room.

It’s an opinion shared by several senior players, who have discussed the prospect of Coutinho’s arrival.

Instead, Messi and co are in agreement that Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli would be the better option. Messi, particularly, is a fan of the England international and believes he would make an immediate impact in Barca’s midfield.
