"Before, the power of the Barcelona members was so great that they didn't even allow sponsorship on the shirt. Now we see 'Qatar Airways' on the shirt. So if they allow advertising, why can't Messi play for Bayern Munich?" asked the Argentinean. He went on to say, "I really believe that Messi could be wearing a different shirt now."
In this regard, Maradona joked about the possibility of seeing Messi wearing the German side's shirt.
"It would be the end of football. Lewandowski and Messi? Everyone else would be left playing for second place - in all of the competitions and in all of the leagues. If Bayern buy Messi, I'll be Guardiola's assistant."
