London, July 24 (ANI): Argentine footballer Lionel Messi has invited Oasis band member Noel Gallagher to come and watch him play at the Barcelona-Real Madrid derby.

English rock band Oasis is said to have been the inspiration for pre-match preparations in the Argentina dressing room during the World Cup in South Africa.

Now Messi, 23, wants to return the favour by inviting Oasis guitar legend and Man City fan Noel, 43, over to Barcelona’s Nou Camp stadium.

“Maybe Noel could give the boys a live set after training and they could see how great Oasis are. At the moment they refuse to listen to anything other than Kasabian,” the Sun quoted him as saying.

“We could also go for an Argentinean steak at this great South American restaurant in Barcelona.

“And if my plan works, it will mean Oasis being played in the world’s greatest football club - after Man City, of course!” he added. (ANI)
