3 Players Who Could Succeed Lionel Messi at Barcelona

Lionel Messi is irreplaceable. That much, we can all be assured of. The Argentine is an active legend of the game, someone who can be dubbed as the greatest of all time because of what he has achieved in his career. 

And yet, father time consumes everyone – and Messi won’t be an exception to that either. With that in mind, here are 3 players who could succeed him at the Camp Nou.

3. Ousmane Dembele

Barcelona could look within and appoint Ousmane Dembele as a possible successor to Lionel Messi’s throne at the Camp Nou. While the Frenchman may have his problems with injury and discipline, there can’t be any denying about his class. 

The former Rennes star is incredibly two-footed and can dribble past opponents with the utmost ease. Among the players that ply their trade in the football fraternity, Dembele is the most naturally gifted player to take over from Messi.

2. Jadon Sancho

Jadon Sancho has taken Europe by storm with his insane performances for Borussia Dortmund over the last year. The Englishman has been fantastic for the German giants, who have given him the platform to showcase his talents. 

Like Dembele, he has got the ability to dribble past players and make decisive passes in the final third. He is also a good scorer, as he has already scored three times from 7 matches in the league while also assisting 5 times.

1. Raheem Sterling

Among all the players listed here, Raheem Sterling is easily the most refined product. The Englishman has taken his game to another level under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola and with each passing match, he looks more and more like a future Ballon d’Or winner. 

From the 6 Euro Qualifier matches he has played for England, he has 8 goals and 5 assists. For Manchester City, he has scored 6 times from 7 matches as he finally looks like a player who can score in almost every game.
