Things are getting exciting.
Omar Barrada revealed, Director of Operations In Manchester CityThat his club will be in an economic position to sign Lionel Messi next summer if the opportunity arises.
And the flea wanted to leave Barcelona Last summer, the name of City appeared as the closest destination to it, especially in light of the presence of Pep Guardiola at the head of the technical leadership there.
Ultimately, Messi decided to continue with Barcelona after the clamor of the penalty clause and its validity or not, so Leo announced that he would not stand before Barça in the courts and would continue until the end of his contract in the summer of 2021.
Barrada, in turn, kept the door open to City’s free contract with Messi next summer, saying, “He is an amazing talent. He is someone who can make a big impact in any club in the world, whether inside or outside the stadium.”
He also added, “He is the best player in the world and the best player of his generation. I think any club would like to explore the possibility of signing him.”
“The fact that he was said to have a desire to play for Manchester City shows you how far the team has come in the past years, as we see the best player of his generation saying he wants to come to us.”
“It’s hard to guess what would happen. If you go back and see what happened in Barcelona for two weeks, it is almost impossible to guess what will happen next summer.”
“Messi is the best player in the world and perhaps an exception for the potential investments that we were making out of the ordinary, but at the moment we are planning with our current team and looking into the opportunities that we have.”
He added, “We have to be prepared for every possible situation because many things can happen, but at the same time I think that we have the financial and systemic strength to make such an investment when needed.”
“This puts us in a position in which we feel comfortable because we will be able to make the right decision because it also does not mean that we will rush to anything first because Aguero and Jesus are showing good levels and when we decide to bring another person, whether next season or the next, we will be in a better financial position.”
Manchester City did not have a good start to the current season, as it won a match and was then crushed by Leicester City by five and tied with the rookie Leeds United, while Messi led Barcelona to two wins over Villarreal and Celta Vigo and tied with Sevilla.
