Will Rajasthan Royals Sign Lionel Messi at IPL Mega Auction? Team Director Kumar Sangakkara Responds

New Delhi: Arguably, one of the biggest mystery currently in the world of sports in which club will Lionel Messi be representing once the current La Liga season comes  to an end. Will he join Paris Saint-Germain? Is a reunion with friend, mentor and former manager Pep Guardiola on the cards at Manchester City? Is he headed to Major League Soccer? Or will Barcelona, his current club where’s he’s been signed to since his pre-teen days, manage to keep him at Camp Nou.

But hang on. There’s a twist. In the world of hopeful fans, anything is possible. Take for example this Rajasthan Royals supporter who wishes to see the IPL franchise sign Messi at the mega auction next year. During a question-and-answer session with RR’s Director of Cricket Kumar Sangakkara, the Sri Lanka legend didn’t rule out the possibility saying the all-round capabilities the Argentine possesses, it won’t be surprise if he can play cricket as well.

And, in a video shared by RR, Sanga replied,  “Are you talking about Lionel Messi? Well, wonderful to have a player like him. I’m sure with his talent, he can definitely play some cricket as well.”

The possibility of watching Messi bat or bowl in IPL sits outside the realm of possibility, won’t that be a sight watching, perhaps, the greatest footballer of his generation dazzle fans in a cricket field!

And it’s not that Messi is a greenhorn when it comes to cricket.

The video below is a proof.

Meanwhile, RR will launch their bid for a second IPL title on April 12 when they take on Punjab Kings at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
