Football superstar, Lionel Messi has lamented how money is fast taking the place of value in the world of football.
The five-time world football champion said Real Madrid and Barcelona remain the best football clubs in the world due to the quality of players they have attracted over time.
Messi, who earns an estimated £365,000 a week at Barcelona said the reckless spending by some clubs was taking fun out of the game.
There are clubs now with a lot of money and players move for that reason,” he told Catalunya radio.
“Wherever the most money is, that’s where they end up going.

“Things have changed and now the owners of clubs are multi-millionaires. Before, everyone wanted to play for Barca or Madrid, who were the best, but now everything’s tighter and there’s not much of a difference between the teams in Manchester, PSG, Madrid, us, Bayern [Munich], the Italians.”
