‘Messi could get bored of La Liga’

Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo has claimed that Lionel Messi could ‘get bored’ with La Liga and leave Barcelona.

The former Sevilla man signed for the Premier League club in the summer, and the Spain international believes that the Blaugrana sensation could do the same.

"I could see someone like Messi coming to England and following players like David Silva, Juan Mata, Santi Cazorla, David de Gea and myself,” he told the Daily Mirror.

“He could play well in any League in the world.

"Maybe in two or five years he will get bored with La Liga, want a change and come over here.

"The Premier League is the best place to be for the world's top stars. Having been here for a few months, it is better than I thought it would be. Your expectations go up here."

Messi signed a two-year contract extension earlier this year that ties him to the Catalan side until 2018.
