Wayne Rooney who was a prolific striker while playing for Manchester United has now suggested that Lionel Messi would win another Ballon d’Or if he should move to England.
The former England international stated that playing alongside Bruno Fernandes and Kevin De Bruyne will help Lionel Messi to land his seventh Ballon d’Or.
Rooney’s assertion means that he wants Messi to join Manchester City or his former club Manchester United.
