Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has been linked with a move away from the club this summer and it seems that Premier League giants Manchester City are leading the chase.
According to recent reports Lionel Messi’s father is in England right now to negotiate a transfer to Manchester City.
Messi has worked with Pep Guardiola before and the two share a great mutual respect. The Spaniard could help Messi win the Champions League once again.
Manchester City need a bit more quality to win the Champions League as well and the transfer would be beneficial for both parties.
Messi is thought to be frustrated with the lack of ambition shown by Barcelona and he wants to join a club where he can win the major trophies once again.
Meanwhile Sergio Aguero’s latest social media move has fuelled speculations that Messi is indeed on his way to Manchester City.
The Manchester City striker decided to change his social media handle from KunAguero10 to KunAguero. The number 10 is heavily associated with Lionel Messi and the fans believe that Aguero is preparing for his compatriot’s arrival and he’s ready to give up the number 10 shirt for the Barcelona superstar.
It will be interesting to see where Messi ends up this summer. Barcelona are unlikely to let him leave easily and this could be a long and drawn-out process.
