Former Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuain has urged his Argentine teammate Lionel Messi to shun a proposed move to Premier League anytime soon.
The Juventus forward who spent just six months at Stamford Bridge under Maurizio Sarri claims the EPL defenders show no mercy.
Messi has hinted at quitting Barcelona after a series of altercations with the club chiefs after going trophyless last campaign.
Their woes were compounded after Bayern Munich inflicted an 8-2 defeat on them in their Champions League quarterfinal stage.
Having spent all his time at Camp Nou up till now, the 33-year-old has been linked with a move to reunite with his former boss Pep Guardiola.
Inter Milan are also said to be interested in the six-time Ballon d'Or winner in a bid to recreate rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo who plays for Juventus.
“England? Over there defenders kick the s*** out of you and nothing gets given by referees,” Higuain shared.
“They’re built like wardrobes and they hit you. I suffered a lot in the English league. I did not manage to adapt in six months. It has nothing to do with the Spanish League.
“I don’t know how it could impact Leo, but being a player of another level I don’t think he would suffer, but it’s a very complicated league.”
Messi has not hidden his disagreement with Barca president Josep Bartomeu and has voiced his desire to leave the club this summer.
Higuain believes he must make a decision that ‘makes him happy’. "I don’t know what Leo Messi might be thinking.
“I hope he decides what he feels will make him happy. That is the most important thing in a decision. Choosing what one feels will make him happy, not what will make others happy.”
