What will Manchester City be able to do for Messi that Barcelona cannot?
Recently, the rumors have been confirmed that the greatest footballer of all time wants to depart Barcelona. Lionel Messi failed to attend the pre-season medical with the team on Sunday; the contractual relationship is over, so it’s no longer necessary for the player to show up. The sports world is still in shock after the news that the Argentinian star wants to leave the club.
According to MARCA, Manchester City is best positioned to land the player that everyone is dreaming of signing, even if other teams have shown vivid interest in Lionel Messi, such as PSG and Juventus. The Citizens can certainly afford him. They just need to overcome some hurdles. Messi would be a great tactical fit at the club. But what can Manchester city be able to do for the GOAT? Let’s take a look-see.
Offer Messi the opportunity to win the most competitive football league in the world
It’s no secret that the Premier League is more competitive than La Liga, boasting highly talented footballers. Any team can beat any team. Matches are always difficult and it is nearly impossible to predict who will win. Nobody can predict what team will go home with the League title given how tight the race is. Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Leicester have equal chances of finishing at the top.
The teams in the Premier League play about 38 games in a single season, meaning that English teams play more football. The quality of the clubs is rising owing to an abundance of good managers. Let’s take Jurgen Klopp as an example. The German manager transformed Liverpool’s fortunes in just 5 years. As for Pep Guardiola, he succeeded in transforming Manchester City into a superpower. His image is associated with astounding success.
Give Messi the chance to win the upcoming Champions League
Who could possibly forget Barcelona’s humiliating defeat against Bayern Munich? The Bavarians scored 8 goals without their prolific striker Robert Lewandowski. The truth is that it’s been years since Barça managed to get to the final of the UEFA competition. Tried as he might, the six-time Ballon d'Or winner wasn’t decisive in the competition.
Manchester City crashed out of the competition this year, just before the big final, but it has the chance to turn things around. Just think about how memorable the next season will be if the Citizens unlock Messi’s genius from the center and create a system that hides his defensive weakness. Manchester City has a good chance of winning the upcoming Champions League even without Messi and end their drought.
Help Messi become part of a diverse, dynamic squad that can help him rise to glory once again
Right now, the six-time Ballon d'Or winner needs something different. Former Spain international Xavi Alonso declared to Suddeutsche Zeitung that Messi requires something new to “get back to feeling the pure pleasure of football”. Well, Manchester City can offer the football player the opportunity to join a diverse, dynamic squad that can help him rise to glory. The Argentinian star wouldn’t have to develop shortcuts to stay happy on the field.
As we already know, Messi is close friends with Sergio Aguero. Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain know the player from their time spent at Barcelona. Last but not least, it is worth mentioning the special relationship Messi has with Pep Guardiola, who spent six seasons in Spain. During his time spent at Barça, Guardiola transformed Messi into the best player of all time.
