A CHEEKY tweet by Dominos made Wrexham AFC fans briefly imagine that the current rise in fortunes of their club could reach impossible heights.

When it was confirmed that arguably the greatest footballer of all time was out of contract, Dominos tweeted that Wrexham's new co-owner Ryan Reynolds could make him an offer.

The pizza chain tweeted: "Ryan Reynolds to Messi:

"Have you ever heard of this place called Wrexham?"

Ryan and co-chairman Rob McElhenney are already making big moves at Wrexham.

Former Sunderland manager Phil Parkinson was appointed to lead the challenge to restore Wrexham to the Football League.

And a phone call with Paul Mullin persuaded the record-breaking League Two goalscorer to ply his trade at The Racecourse.

Wrexham Town's Policing Team got in on the fun.

They tweeted: "Messi to Wrexham is doing the rounds on social media, we think that he’d make a great addition to our Wrexham Town Neighbourhood Policing Team!"

However, signing the six-time Ballon d’Or winner does seem incredulous.

Messi who joined Barca as a 13-year-old and leaves having played his part in the capture of 35 trophies

The player himself has confirmed Paris St Germain could be his next destination after bidding a tearful goodbye to Barcelona.

The 34-year-old Argentina international received a standing ovation from family and friends, current and former team-mates and journalists during a farewell press conference at the Nou Camp yesterday, three days after the club announced his impending departure.

An emotional Messi, who has since been heavily linked with both the Ligue 1 giants PSG and Manchester City, gave a brief address before answering questions over the aborted contract negotiations which led to his exit after 21 years. Barca blamed LaLiga’s financial fair play rules for their inability to strike a deal.

Asked about PSG’s interest, he said: “That’s honestly one possibility, to reach those heights. At the minute, I’ve got nothing confirmed with anybody.

“When the press release was published, I had a lot of calls, a lot of clubs were interested.

“At the minute, I’ve not got anything closed, but we are talking about a lot of things.”

Whatever lies ahead for the six-times Ballon d’Or winner, who joined Barca as a 13-year-old and leaves having played his part in the capture of 35 trophies, he admitted his “blood ran cold” when it emerged that he was not going to be able to stay.

UPDATE - Lionel Messi has completed a move to Paris St Germain, according to reports.

The French club reacted to speculation suggesting a two-year deal for the Argentinian is imminent by publishing a video teasing his arrival.

The 13-second clip on the club’s Twitter account features what appears a brief image of a footballer in an Argentina number 10 shirt and a picture of the PSG dressing room with an Argentina flag hanging above a seat.

It is accompanied by the words, “New diamond in Paris”.
