London: Footballer Lionel Messi is all set to take over the fashion world, as he is planning to launch his own clothing range.
And the Barcelona and Argentina hero is counting on some famous pals to help him make it a success.
His idea is to sign a sport, movie, or music star as an ambassador in each major city around the globe.
"I have been working on it for a few months. It would be me in Barcelona. We`ve approached Wayne for Manchester, Frank for London, and Colin for Dublin,” a news daily quoted him as saying.
"We have spoken with Jay-Z for New York and the dream is to have David for LA. I already have (footballer) ALESSANDRO NESTA and (rapper) LUPE FIASCO in Milan and Chicago.”
"It will be high-end clothes and accessories for men. I`d like to open the initial shops by next summer.”
"If we get all the names we are trying for, we can be the most famous and best men``s fashion brand in the world," he added.
