Barça’s stinging defeat against PSG (1-4) at Camp Nou in the first leg of the Champions League’s knockout stages would have convinced the six-time Ballon d’Or Lionel Messi to leave the Catalan club next summer.
According to our colleagues from Todofichajes, Lionel Messi’s destination could take during the next summer Mercato is that of the English club Manchester City. Suppose the PSG track is definitively ruled out. In that case, it is given the announced extension of Kylian Mbappé at PSG what makes impossible the arrival of the captain of Barça in the club of the French capital.
The departure of Messi among the citizens would be on the way to materialize because the English club has been offering internally, contracts revised downwards to its main stars, and better prepared for the arrival of the Pulga.
Even if Messi would have liked to share a locker room with Neymar again, this option becomes impractical as French striker Kylian Mbappé seems to want to extend his lease at PSG.
For the Argentine, the bet is now to go to England and join Pep Guardiola’s project. Since last summer, the Spaniard has been talking with his former player.
