Allan Saint-Maximin responded hilariously to a user on Twitter who asked what the Frenchman would do if Lionel Messi joined Newcastle and demanded the #10 shirt.
The French winger at Newcastle, Allan Saint-Maximin, had a season to remember in his debut Premier League year.
The 23-year-old finished the 2019/20 season with four goals and seven assists for Newcastle but dazzled fans across the country with his incredible dribbling and enthusiasm off-the-pitch.
His interactions with the fans of the Toon has also made him a favourite in the Premier League, especially his interactions on social media.

With Lionel Messi handing in a transfer request on August 25th to leave Barcelona, fans across the globe are hoping to have a shot at getting Messi in their shirt.
Even though it seems like Newcastle's planned takeover looks like it won't come to fruition, fans are still hoping to see Messi in the Newcastle black and white.
A very optimistic Newcastle fan on Twitter asked Saint-Maximin what he would do if Messi joined him at Newcastle, but demanded the #10 shirt he currently owns.
@asaintmaximin What are you going to do if Lionel Messi asks for the 10 shirt?

Always the joker rather than taking the message seriously, Saint-Maximin responded in a comedic tone saying that he will wake-up.
However, the deprecating humour by Saint-Maximin was quickly defended by the Newcastle faithful with him already being Newcastle's most popular player by a landslide.
Messi wont ever replace you lad, you deserve a statue outside st james park
