Messi joining Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp's stance as world no1 officially leaves Barcelona


Potential Seven-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi now available for a free grasp this summer

The Argentine ran out of contract with Barcelona on July 1, notwithstanding, his contract extension saga continued for over a month but has finally been laid to rest with the Catalans confirming on Thursday that a new deal for the player is impossible due to financial and structural obstacles.

Klopp could overcome competition to land Messi for free this summer, having openly expressed his likeness for the Argentine .

It gathered that the Liverpool manager is ready to facilitate a move for the six-time Ballon d'Or winner this summer instead of splashing a huge sum on any other star player.

Messi, 34, Jurgen  Klopp has has described as a more useful player on the pitch when asked to give his verdict on the Argentine and Cristiano Ronaldo in an interview in the summer of last year.

"For me Messi, but I couldn't admire Ronaldo more than I do already," Klopp told YouTube channel freekickerz.

"The explanation is the following: We've played against both already and both are almost impossible to defend.

"But Messi has much lower physical requirements from birth on.

"If you could paint yourself a perfect player, it would have Ronaldo's height, he could jump and run as high or quick as Ronaldo can do.

"And what is then even added to that is his total attitude - it is absolutely perfect and professional, it couldn't be any better.

"And on the other side there is the small Messi who makes everything look so simple.

"And therefore I like him maybe a little bit more as a player on the pitch. But Cristiano is also an absolutely incredible player."
