Lionel Messi reportedly open moving to England due to tax problems

The Argentinian demands 600 thousand pounds per week, with Arsenal interested

New rumors have surfaced in the past 24 hours, as Lionel Messi is open to a move to the Premier League according to the Daily Star. The player is supposedly asking 18 million pounds per year to depart Barcelona. The report also claims Arsenal is his preferred choice.

Lionel Messi has went through difficult times off pitch with an ongoing tax fraud controversy, with the Spanish tax authorities accusing the player of defrauding over €4 million in unpaid taxes. This issue is troubling Leo and his family, and it leads to rumors of an unlikely shocking exit from the Camp Nou.

On a brighter note, FC Barcelona president Bartomeu will begin working on a new contract to keep Leo at the Camp Nou until he retires, and can't imagine him in any colors other than Barça's.
