Man City determined to sign Messi

Liverpool fans react as Pep Guardiola signs new deal at Man City

This time, though, he left the door ajar.

The former Barca manager's extension at City has opened up the possibility of a reunion with Messi in England, with the player in the past year of his current contract in Spain having unsuccessfully tried to leave the club in the close season.

Paris St-Germain have also been linked with the 33-year-old, although every candidate Barcelona presidential election - to be held in January - has said it is a priority for them to persuade Messi to stay at the Nou Camp.

This would hint at City trying to bring Messi to Manchester after the end of the season, and they can sign him for nothing, if the South American decides not to renew his contract with Barcelona.

Guardiola signed a new two-year deal with City this week that ties him to the club until 2023. He was asked Friday whether the possibility of working with the six-time world player of the year again was motivation for his decision. I'd like as a Barcelona fan for him to finish his career there.

The latest player was isolated from the squad and "moved to separate, appropriate accommodation with immediate effect", CSA said. Both sets of players need to observe 10 days of quarantine before the games but are being allowed to train during that time.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has insisted for a second time that he wants to see Lionel Messi retire at Barcelona, despite speculation linking the six-time Ballon d'Or victor with a move to the Etihad in the January transfer window. That is what I want.

"Ever since I arrived at Manchester City, I've been made to feel so welcome in the club and in the city itself", said Guardiola.

"But he finishes the year of his contract", he added.

Guardiola said Jose Mourinho's Spurs deserved to be considered title threats as he rued his side's lack of goals. Right now Messi is a Barcelona player and the transfer market is in June and July.

"We have incredible games and targets and things we would like to achieve. The rest, I can not say anything".
