5.- River Plate

The other Argentine club that Lionel Messi supports is River Plate, this is also the same team that refused to pay for his growth hormone treatment when he was a kid.

In a sense, Lionel Messi’s career in Barcelona wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the rejection this club had against Leo.

A perfect back-handed compliment would be to go back and play for River Plate as the legend that he already is, it would be something beautiful to watch.

In fact, this club is arguably one of the few that can pay an elevated wage to the Barcelona star.

Messi was already spotted in last year’s Copa Libertadores final, he didn’t wear any shirts but we know he prefers River over Boca.
