Messi: I'd love Higuain at Barca

Lionel Messi has admitted that he ‘would love’ Gonzalo Higuain to join him at Barcelona.

The Napoli striker has been heavily linked with a switch to the Catalan capital, and has already conceded that he would be open to joining Luis Enrique’s men.

And the former Ballon d’Or winner has claimed that he would like his international teammate to join him at club level

“I’ve talked to [Higuain] and the truth is I would love him to come to Barcelona and have him as a partner for the club,” Messi told reporters overnight.

“We’d do fine. He’s the best.”
