80 million pounds sounds like it might be the initiative that he needs to make it a full season long. I wonder if some of the feedback his people can see online about fans wondering of his age and game play will give him the boost he needs.
Messi is rated as one of the best in the world. I wouldn't argue with that but I think the argument about his 'greatness' has to be put in perspective with his age and even more importantly, his ability to play a full season.
I wonder what the rate is for a sportsmen to recover from something compared to someone who does not play? He has healed good so far but I wonder if its going to be something that he jumps back into too quick and ends up hurting himself again.
