These are two of the biggest and most popular clubs in the world, much less Europe. Both won their domestic leagues this season. Both have millions of supporters worldwide.
One has one of the longest-standing, most well respected managers in world football. The other has one of the youngest, most well respected, up-and-coming managers in the world.
Both feature several of the best players at their positions in the world. United defender Nemanja Vidic was named the Premiership player of the year, midfielder Nani is being pursued by some of Europe’s top clubs and Wayne Rooney is one of the world’s most dangerous strikers.
Meanwhile, Barcelona’s Lionel Messi is arguably the world’s finest player, having scored a ridiculous 52 goals in 54 appearances this year for the Blaugrana. Oh, and Barca also features other World Cup-winning luminaries like Xavi, Iniesta and Puyol.
It’s an absolute dream Champions League Final matchup. Follow along with us, won’t you?
