Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola considered that Lionel Messi should continue his career at FC Barcelona, as he will not feel more comfortable in any other club, in addition to betting on the institution to return to the bases so that it can resurface.
“Hopefully (Messi) can finish his career at Barça. If he is looking for a habitat, he will not find a better one than here.
“The only thing that has to be done, as our dear teacher (Cruyff) said, is to go back to the origins, to rescue the why of things, what makes Barça special in many things in the way of playing and there is no better place than here because we know how to do it. The foundational thing is already done, “said Pep in an interview with TV3.
Guardiola’s words come a few weeks after the Barça captain decides whether or not to renew the contract with Barça, which ends at the end of the season, and as it will be remembered, before it he made public that he wanted to leave.
Also this week a journalistic report was released in which it was pointed out that Paris Saint-Germain would already have the sporting and economic offer ready for Messi to play in France next season.
There is talk of two seasons with the option of a third, and although figures were not revealed, it was considered that the money supply is “unattainable” with respect to what Barcelona could offer.
It should also be remembered that Manchester City, led by Pep Guardiola, was one of the clubs most interested in Messi when he announced his intention to leave.
Although, apparently the ‘Citizens’ have already given up the possibility of trying to bring ‘La Pulga’ into their ranks, who was able to meet again with Guardiola, with whom he lived a golden age at Barça.
