LIONEL MESSI WANTED TO JOIN UP WITH MANCHESTER CITY IN 2016.
Lionel Messi wanted to leave the Spanish giants Barcelona in July 2016. He had a phone call with Pep Guardiola, after he became the new manager of Manchester City. They even met in Spain when Pep Guardiola was on a holiday in Spain. Lionel Messi and Mr Jorge Messi , the father and also the agent of Lionel Messi , told Manchester City that Lionel Messi was feeling all trapped inside Barcelona and wanted a move to England. Now the president of Barcelona in a meeting with Lionel Messi and Jorge Messi, made it amply clear to them both that Barcelona would not be willing to release Lionel Messi at any price.
