Manchester City seem to be watching Lionel Messi’s situation at FC Barcelona after his dispute with transgaming.orging director Eric Abidal and would likely be looking for the Argentine if he had to make a move. This report Espn quoting their own information.
City are said to be aware of the low probability of Messi leaving Barcelona. However, the 32-year-old striker’s commitment would be considered a favourite if he left the Nou Camp either next summer or after the end of his current contract in 2021. Messi would have a clause in his discussion paper that would allow him to pass without replacement after the end of this season.
In City, you’re strong Espn That is why Messi has a good relationship with manager Pep Guardiola, transgaming.orging director Txiki Begiristain and also manager Ferran Soriano, everything he knows well about Barcelona. In addition, the reigning English champions would be one of the few clubs in the world to pay Messi’s salary.
Messi had responded to a charge from transgaming.orging director Abidal on Tuesday with an angry message on Instagram that the sacking of coach Ernesto Valverde in January had something to do with recruitment problems on the part of the players. “I really don’t like to do this, but I think everyone should make their decisions carefully and take responsibility. The players around what’s happening on the field – and we’re also the first to admit when we’re not playing well. Sports leaders must also be aware of their responsibilities and, above all, take responsibility for their own decisions,” Messi wrote.
Barca coach Quique Setien calmly commented on Wednesday’s incidents: “These things don’t affect me. And I’m also trying to make sure they don’t affect my players either. We talked about it a minute ago, but that’s it. I’m only interested in football,” Setien said before the Cup match at Athletic Bilbao on Thursday (9pm live on DAZN).
