ABOVE: Lionel Messi scored 56 goals this season

ENGLISH football fans dreaming of seeing Lionel Messi star in the Premier League have had their hopes dashed.
The Argentine magician, 25, has won four consecutive Ballon d'Or awards and is considered by many to be the greatest player to have graced the planet.
