Destiny played an important role in Lionel Messi‘s transfer to FC Barcelona when he was young. The Brazilian magazine “Globoesporte” talked about the player’s early steps in his career.

His first agent Horacio Gaggioli highlighted the fact that the player could have joined Real Madrid when he first came to Spain.

Horacio explained to the magazine: “Due to some life circumstances, I went to live in Barcelona and I took Messi with me so that he makes some technical tests within the club. In the past, I used to live in Madrid. If I stayed there, I would have taken him to make the same tests in Real Madrid. His family wanted to move to Spain and I have tried to provide all the support to them”.
