Scientist: Lionel Messi could be cloned
Modern techniques could get the world a cloned Messi
With the aid of modern techniques, Lionel Messi could be cloned, according to Arcadi Navarro.
Navarro, a genetic specialist and the head of the European Genomes Archive claimed that the Barcelona and Argentine forward could be cloned.
Messi, 31, has been in some blistering form this season – as he is the top goal scorer in Europe’s top five leagues.
Also, he leads the combined goals and assists this season with 60, and arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo second with 36.
The excellence the La Masia product has represented all through his career earned him applause from Real Betis’s fans on Sunday.
In an interview with Que t’hi jugues, per Marca, Navarro highlighted plans for having even more Messi magic.
“We could get a player very similar to Messi,” he said.
“We would be able to clone him with current techniques and get something that would look like a twin. It would be as if two twins had been born and one of them would have been kept frozen in a time chamber.
“Then 20 or 30 years later we would return him to his correct time. If everything had gone well, it would be the same.”
