Reports: Lionel Messi Wants FC Barcelona To Sign Four Players

By David Kappel - Apr 21, 2017 10:58 AM @kappilinho

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi reportedly wants his side to make at least four top signings in order to compete with Real Madrid again next season.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see four players who have been linked with Barca.

Following their UEFA Champions League exit earlier this week, the Catalan giants need to beat Los Blancos in the upcoming El Clasico to remain in the race for the league title or their season could be considered a write-off.

However, even if they beat Real at the Santiago Bernabeu this weekend, they would still need to rely on their eternal rivals to slip up one more time in order to have a realistic chance of claiming the La Liga trophy.

Rumours have it that the Madrid club will spend heavily in the upcoming transfer window, and Messi apparently wants Barca to match their ambitions and sign at least four players.

According to Diario Gol, the superstar wants the Blaugrana to sign a new centre back, with Jeremy Mathieu having often disappointed and Javier Mascherano not getting any younger.

In addition, he is said to want the club to sign a new right back after they failed to fill the void left by Dani Alves' departure to Juventus, as well as a new central midfielder to relieve Andres Iniesta of some pressure, with Andre Gomes having failed to impress since joining at the beginning of this season.

Paco Alcacer has also struggled to live up to expectations, having only scored five goals in 23 appearances, and Messi apparently also wants another attacker who can provide some adequate competition for Barcelona's MSN attacking trio.

Which players do you think Barca should sign? Have your say in the comments section below.

Messi is the owner of Barcelona nw, he get to decide who stay/go or comes. Lol that's why they lost to Juve, the ''so called'' GOAT was busy scouting players while others were busy at training....mxm

N as a supported, fans, or people against Barca why should we worry if Messi have his opinion on which players to sign? If Messi is adding to his job by selecting players, u also have more to say than just being a supporter,fan,etc, so u are no longer supporting only, So same as Messi is doing, I don't see the differ between a fan blaiming Messi and Messi himself

Question is why Messi getting involved in the team affairs as to which player the team need to sign? Messi is part of the team, Messi may be suffer more than the staff when lost a game, it might be easy for him to understand which players may suite their style than the people u mentioned, Messi don't want to loose the next competitions coz off team being week, so the scouts etc may evaluate the players Messi think are better before they buy them

Barcelona can sign any player they want to sign because they have resources to do just that.Question is why Messi getting involved in the team affairs as to which player the team need to sign?I guess Barcelona like any other top proffesional teams they have scouts and people who work on that department,Messi must shut up and focus on delivering his best on the football pitch

Soccer laduma stop lying to us maan, everyday we hear that Messi wants this cow and that cow or Messi wants this cow out of Barca which none of it is real. Of all the lies you been publishing about players that Messi wants or not want, how many lies have turned out to be true??? Since when now players became scouts? Even if they wish to play alongside certain players, only the president of the club makes that decision and eventually sign a player. I know all about player-power but that applies when the club's favorite player approaches the club's president-refer to Ancolleti vs Bale saga whilst at Madrid. Enough is enough honourable...#liesmustfall

These are lies but they could be a good addition but they must forget about Griezmann and Isco!
