Is Messi worth rebuilding for?

I currently have this team

Handanovic
Florenzi - 87 Benatia - IF nkoudo - PTG Sandro
PTG SMS - IF Allan - Nainggolan - IF Ramirez
Mertens - PTG Icardi

I have around 500k & was going to get birthday Florenzi & peres but wasn't aware that Messi is in range. PTG Icardi & Sandro are untradeable so I could build a hybrid around those to fit Messi in but is he worth it?

    Is that 4222?


    I think you'd enjoy Messi at RM if you switch to 442. Would be a cool hybrid :)

    That's currently in 41212 (2) Allan CDM, Ramirez CAM.... Although I'll probably sub Kaka on at CAM at half time now

    I don't know if you would have to rebuild... can you get rid of Ramirez and Mertens and maybe go with an Argentine three-some (Messi, Higuain, Icardi) up top?

    Are you opposed to a 4312? Very easy to get him in there if you were wanting to use him at striker

    Icardi and Messi up top with mertens CAM, IF Allen under mertens and Paulinho under messi. Whether you want Messi on the left or right just link sandro/Peres to get Paulinho that extra link. Rest can be whoever you want in the serie A. Could also go Dybala at CAM instead of Mertens and that would give you a little more wiggle room on who to link with Messi since you would only need an orange link but Paulinho looks rather decent

    Alejandro Gomez > Higuain IMO

    I couldn't get on with Higuin but Gomez is certainly an option. I don't have any issue with 4312, so that would make things easy.

    Is it worth getting him over Florenzi though? Even sounds like a silly question when I type it :joy:

    Dybala would work in a 41212(2) since he wouldn't need that second strong link like mertens. I would personally much rather have somebody like Messi over florenzi. Attackers are always more fun to spend the coins on.

    Messi is fun to use but his stamina is a joke

    Messi is amazing. His finesse shots go in every time and his dribbling is unreal. You can use the left stick and just weave in and out of defenders to create space.

    Probably the most fun I've had on 18 but he's small and not very strong which are his only weaknesses. I played him at ST and RCAM in 4222 and he was amazing in both positions.

    I only sold him because I wanted to use the coins elsewhere.
