In a blockbuster move, five time FIFA Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi has transferred to the Quatre Camins prison team in La Roca del Vallès from FC Barcelona for €4.1m in tax fraud.

“We are very honored to welcome this legendary player to our squad and look forward to watching him put on our uniforms,” said Quatre Camins prison warden Migual Herrera in a statement.

“The transfer fee was not what we were expecting but our hands were tied,” said FC Barcelona manager Luis Enrique.

Lionel Messi expects to clear transfer with FIFA pending a physical with the prison.
