Pablo Zabaleta has told Joe’s All To Play For podcast that he would love to see Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi move to Manchester City this summer – claiming it would be a dream for Pep Guardiola to sign the player he managed at Nou Camp.
Messi, 33, has been unbelievable for Barcelona once again this season – scoring an enormous 29 goals in 33 appearances as well as laying on 13 assists. The 142-time Argentina international is out of contract at Barcelona this summer.
He turns 34 in June but Barcelona are desperate to keep him. Joan Laporta has won the Barcelona presidential election and is keen to keep him, but a new deal needs to be orchestrated sooner rather than later. If anyone can sign him, City have a chance.
Manchester City icon Zabaleta has responded when asked if the Argentine sensation – his former international teammate – could move to The Etihad this summer, and he reckons there is certainly a chance given Guardiola remains in charge.
