Lionel Messi is currently Barcelona’s captain and is also one of the senior members of the squad. The Catalan club’s season went from bad to worse when the situation in Barcelona’s dressing room deteriorated to unprecedented levels.
Lionel Messi has dragged Barcelona past the finish line more times than anyone can care to remember. The Argentine forward is currently the best player in the world and arguably the best in the history of football.
According to several reports in the Spanish media, Manchester City has taken note of Lionel Messi’s contract situation and has been closely following Barcelona’s financial struggles in the recent past.
Manchester City has attempted to sign Lionel Messi on several occasions in the past but has never managed to prise Barcelona’s crown jewel from Spain. Lionel Messi had previously reiterated his commitment to Barcelona and is likely to snub Manchester City and continue his stay at the club.
The owners of Manchester City are financially powerful and will also be able to afford Lionel Messi’s enormous wages. The Barcelona captain is likely to remain at the Catalan club for the foreseeable future but with the latest reports coming from Spain, the uncertainty surrounding his long-term plans continues to grow.
