- Nolito is prepared for the La Liga showdown against Barcelona on Sunday
- The Spanish forward has admitted that Lionel Messi has special talents
- Nolito claims God touched Messi with the magic wand three or four times
Ahead of Barcelona’s La Liga clash with Celta Vigo, Spanish star Nolito has stated that Lionel Messi is so blessed that he doesn’t need the gym to achieve anything in football, adding that God touched the Argentine with the magic wand.
The Barcelona captain has been regarded as the best player ever to grace the football pitch and he has won the prestigious Ballon d’Or six times, more than any other footballer.
Barcelona play away to Celta on Sunday, June 28 and Nolito will be looking forward to an entertaining fixture, hoping his side will win and further put pressure on the Blaugrana.
The 33-year-old Nolito seems to be a fan of the Argentine playmaker saying Messi was gifted with special talents that do not require him to be physically stronger than his opponents.
"God touched Messi with the magic wand three or four times to make him the best in the world without the need to go to the gym or anything, it's something that he's got inside," he said, according to Sport.
However, Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes on the other hand believes Ronaldo is better than the Argentine.
The 25-year-old switched to the Old Trafford club from Sporting Lisbon in January and has once again said Ronaldo is the best player in the world having a slight edge over Argentina’s Lionel Messi, adding that he never saw Pele play.
Fernandes has been quite impressive since his arrival at the Old Trafford club scoring four goals and making another four assists.
Lionel Messi is reportedly in talks with Barcelona over a possible fresh two year deal that will see him remain at the club until the end of 2023 season.
The Argentine is looking to extend his stay at the club, but Barcelona have vowed not to increase if current wages as he earns £1.15million-a-week.
Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo are reporting that the Catalan club will not increase the player’s wages with the club also suffering the effect of the pandemic financially.
It was gathered that Messi’s father Jorge is currently in talks with the club’s president Josep Maria Bartomeu with suggestions that both parties have agreed on the contract terms.
