Lionel Messi and Cesc Fabregas set for double MLS transfer as their wives 'convince pair to go to America next'

LIONEL MESSI and Cesc Fabregas are reportedly set for a double MLS move after being persuaded by their wives to go to America.

Messi's future at Barcelona has been in doubt and the superstar could be heading across the Atlantic.

Spanish journalist Guillem Balague told CBS Sports: "At some point, I am sure people will try to convince them to come to the MLS.

"And – I can't remember if I told you this story already – basically Cesc Fabregas wants to go to the MLS.

"Cesc Fabregas' wife and Messi's wife are very good friends and they both, the wives, have convinced Cesc and Messi to go to America together.

"So when that will happen, we don't know yet, because of course Cesc is still at Monaco. But it is something that is in the back of the minds of both players."

Messi and Fabregas are close friends and have spent time on holiday together.

And it seems Messi's wife Antonella Roccuzzo and Fabregas' wife Daniella Semaan have persuaded the stars to end their career in America.

Messi's future at Barcelona is in major doubt after his attempt to leave last summer and he has been linked with a move to Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.


A potential switch to City could open the door to a move to the MLS with an option to join New York City FC.

City are reportedly willing to offer the Argentina star, whose contract ends this summer, the chance to move to sister club New York City later in his career.

Barca crashed out of the Champions League this week after losing 5-2 on aggregate against PSG.
