Lionel Messi to Manchester City- Lionel Messi could be heading to Manchester City this summer after telling the club he has no interest in remaining. The Argentinean superstar is linked to several clubs but Manchester City seems to be club he will likely join due to Pep Guardiola’s influence and close relationship with the attacker.
Messi is reported to have spoke to Guardiola to discuss transfer issues.
Eric Garcia– Barcelona have reportedly reached an agreement with Manchester City to sign Eric Garcia. The talented defender will join Barca this summer to continue his development at the club.
Garcia rejected a four year contract with City citing a lack of first team football as his main reason of rejecting the club advances.
