Danny Mills told his Messi theory is a "sackable offence" as fans left perplexed

Danny Mills has bizarrely claimed that none of the Premier League's 'Big Six' would be interested in snapping up Lionel Messi after his struggles at PSG.

Alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi has dominated world football for the majority of his trophy-laden career and is widely considered to be one of the greatest footballers of all time. However, the Argentine superstar has endured a difficult time since moving to Paris last summer.

The 35-year-old has left fans in France underwhelmed with his performances, with his tally of 11 goals and 15 assists some way off the ridiculous numbers he used to rack up during his time at Barcelona.

But fans have been left absolutely bewildered by Murphy's claim that none of the Premier League's big-hitters would be interested in taking on the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner. Speaking on talkSPORT, the ex-Liverpool man said: "Would you take Lionel Messi – who I think is the greatest football I have ever seen.

"I know Ronaldo's numbers may be a little bit better, and he's more of a big-game player and all the rest of it, but as a pure footballer, Messi is the greatest. But would you take Messi now in your team? Probably not."

Mills went on to claim that the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and even Tottenham would snub a move for Messi – and fans couldn't believe what they were fearing from the ex-City and England full-back. One tweeted: "This is a sackable offence, f***ing dreadful take."

Another reacted by posting: "He's seriously trying to argue that Arsenal and Tottenham wouldn't take the greatest footballer of all time lmao," while another stunned fan tweeted: "Can make an argument for Liverpool having Salah, City already having incredible depth, but then he says SPURS WOULDNT I’m in tears."

Although Messi flopped in his first season in Ligue 1, the PSG star was recently used to model the club's new kit, indicating a swift exit from the Parc des Princes is unlikely.

The veteran will be working under Cristophe Galtier next year after the former Lille man was appointed as Mauricio Pochettino's replacement on Tuesday afternoon.
