Argentinean soccer superstar Lionel Messi and singing sensation Miley Cyrus new connection found! It is neither a rumored hook up nor part of any controversy. The connection between the two worlds has been established through a jersey. How? Let us find out.

Messi is all set for the regular season with FC Barcelona after showing off against Leicester City in a friendly game on Saturday. However, there is an untold connection between Messi and Miley Cyrus that has begun to surface. The new connection is being established via a common interest of the duo. It is most likely their love for  ‘American Basketball’ and #TeamChicagoBulls.

A recent image of Messi on his Instagram account shows him wearing a jersey of the American professional basketball team Chicago Bulls. While taking his giant canine friend out for a stroll, he donned a red Derrick Rose Chicago Bulls Adidas Jersey.

Now, what has Miley Cyrus got to do with that?  We would like to remind our readers that a few years back, the singer appeared in Mike Will Made It’s ’23’ video wearing  a modified version of Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls basketball jersey, which was designed by Kreemo of Atlanta, Georgia. The red jersey was cut into a crop top and hotpants, giving it a bikini-like look.

In both cases, the inclination towards basketball is quite evident. Even CBSSPORTS has pointed out the similarity between these two celebrities. Although they belong to two different worlds, basketball and Chicago Bulls have created an indivisible link between Lionel Messi and Miley Cyrus.

Lionel Messi, 29, is arguably the best footballer in the world at the moment. He is often compared to football legends like Pele and Maradona, and it won’t be a surprise if he overtakes them soon. On the other hand, Miley Cyrus, 23, is a renowned personality in the music and entertainment circle.
