The #FreeMessi campaign is underway. He is clearly not happy at Barcelona but plucky Stuttgart fans have started a crowdfunding campaign in an attempt to raise €900m to sign the Argentinian superstar.
Yet 5 days in the campaign has only raised €262, €899,999,738 short of its target.
Messi has been portrayed in every shirt imaginable, but it certainly wont be Stuttgart. Liverpool have also ruled out signing him.
The description on the GoFundMe page reads: ‘We VfB fans are collecting money to pay for Lionel Messi’s transfer.
‘In the event that the planned amount is not reached on time or Lionel Messi joins another club, 100 per cent of the money raised will be donated to Viva con Agua.’
Could 2020 get anymore ridiculous?
