Spanish legend admits superstar Chelsea target would be ‘even better’ in Premier League

Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez thinks team-mate Lionel Messi would be ‘even better’ in the Premier League.

The Spanish midfield maestro believes the Premier League is less defensive than La Liga, leaving Messi more space to weave his magic.

Xavi is confident Messi’s tally would significantly grow if he played for one of the three English team’s that could realistically afford him, one of which is Chelsea.

As quoted on the Daily Express website, he said: “I think he’d be even better in the Premier League because it is not so defensive.

“When defending against Barcelona, they [English clubs] play on a 1 v 1 basis, defending with passion, and a lot of energy.

“But Leo would find more spaces than in La Liga.”
