Lionel Messi won’t be heading to the German giants this summer. Bayern Munich could be the last opponent Messi played against in a Barcelona kit. Today, they ruled themselves out of signing the Argentine if he is able to leave Barcelona this summer.

CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge commented on the possibility of Messi joining Bayern when asked if his club would entertain the possibility.

“No. We can’t pay a player of that size. It is not part of our policy and philosophy.

“Honestly, hearing that Messi could leave Barcelona makes me a little sad. Leo has written the history of that club and in my opinion he should end his career with the Blaugrana.

“There are internal and private aspects there that I don’t know about and that is why I will not interfere.”

Messi to Bayern doesn’t make any sense. They might be the only club in the world that would be mad to invest a large sum of money into Messi.
