Lanzini, Messi and Luiz



West Ham fans will be hoping that Hammer Manuel Lanzini will not have his head turned by his new found friendship with Chelsea’s David Luiz and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.

David Luiz posted a photo of himself on Instagram with Lanzini watching the Champions League final on a laptop in Dubai’s airport onSaturday.  The pair appear to have decided to travel to Australia together, where Luiz’s Brazil will take on Lanzini’s Argentina in an international friendly at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Paper reports have suggested Lanzini is a Chelsea transfer target this summer with Antonio Conte a fan of the Argentian.

Yesterday, Lanzini was pictured the best of friends of Lionel Messi at the Argentian training camp in Australia as the Bromance between the two mates continued. Last month Messi showed off his impressive shirt collection in his home which included the famous No.28 Claret and Blue shirt worn by his fellow countryman.

You never know, it could be a case of Manu tapping up Messi and Luiz to turn their heads to join West Ham at the London Stadium 😉
