Thinking of who amongst the EPL clubs could land the world best player of our time, one can only imagine the likes of PSG, Inter and Man City but it is the later who is most favourable and have the financial capacity to pull-in the Brazilian wizard. The Sky Blues have made no secret of their desire to sign Lionel Messi in the past, so when the Barcelona legend served his notice to cut ties with the club, a move to the Etihad Stadium was made known.
Pep Guardiola of City have the man who brought out the very best in the forward, building a team around Messi that delivered two Champions League titles and their relationship is still very strong as they still spoke recently. “Messi is the best player in the world. If one day he wants to come to City, we would open the doors wide for him,” City chief executive Ferran Soriano said in 2016. While some people think it is not possible, the door is now widely open, but getting him to walk through it will not be as easy.
