Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has informed the club that he wishes to leave this summer.
According to reports, the Argentine superstar wants to move to the Premier League and Manchester City is at the top of his wish list.
The player has apparently called Neymar as well and he’s trying to persuade the Brazilian to join him in the Premier League.
It will be interesting to see if Manchester City manage to bring Lionel Messi to England this summer.
If they manage to pull it off, it could prove to be one of the greatest transfers in Premier League history.
Pep Guardiola has worked with Lionel Messi at Barcelona and the Argentine could transform the Premier League side’s squad instantly.
City have been desperate to win the Champions League for the last few years and they could certainly take that next step with Messi in their side.
Furthermore, the addition of Neymar could make them invincible for the next few years.
Messi is thought to be frustrated with the lack of ambition at Barcelona and he wants to leave the club on a free transfer.
It will be interesting to see if Barcelona agreed to his demands or it could lead to legal proceedings.
Messi has played with Neymar before at Barcelona and two had a great relationship. Both players enjoyed playing with each other at the Spanish club before Neymar decided to move to PSG.
It is no surprise that Messi is eyeing a reunion with Pep and Neymar this summer.
