Could Lionel Messi be about to be reunited with Pep Guardiola? That is the view of the Spanish paper who first broke the news the player would not be renewing his Barcelona contract.
Marca report: “His options will be limited, though, as clubs cannot afford to meet his salary demands with much ease. But all eyes have turned to Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City.
“As things stand, Man City are the favourites to sign him, but they have just spent big on Jack Grealish and had been interested in Tottenham’s Harry Kane as well, while also knowing that a move for Messi isn’t financially easy to pull off.
“With Kane’s deal far from done, the Premier League champions already look to be changing their plans and turning their attention to Messi. Of course, Guardiola would love to work with the Argentine again.”
