Insight into Man City’s Lionel Messi situation/ Sergio Aguero quizzed on Barcelona star & his own future

Messi & Barcelona

Lionel Messi’s future has of course been a major talking point in the world of football for some time now.

Following his side’s hammering at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League last season, Messi attempted to depart the Camp Nou via a clause in his contract.

However, after months of back and forth, the Argentine eventually opted to stay put for 2020/21.

But, despite being set to see out the remainder of the campaign with Barcelona, Messi’s future beyond the summer remains uncertain.

Man City yet to table offer for Messi

Two of the teams most heavily linked with the veteran attacker over the last year or so have been Manchester City and PSG.

Both are of course very well-backed from a financial standpoint, with City also boasting the lure of Pep Guardiola – the man who arguably oversaw Messi’s finest football of his career.

So, with the South American looking set to become a free agent upon the season’s completion, City’s fans will no doubt be desperate for their side to swoop for one of football’s best ever.

On Friday, though, the Sky Blues have revealed their current situation when it comes to Messi. As per the BBC’s Simon Stone, City have not made an offer for the Barca standout, either last summer or since.

There are also said to be no talks taking place with the 33-year-old:

Elsewhere, Sergio Aguero was also quizzed on City’s interest in Messi this week, but the forward gave little away:

“Who doesn’t like to play with Leo?”

He was also pressed on his own contract at the Etihad, which is due to run out in the summer:

“I don’t know what I’m going to do in June.”
