Guardiola reveals club he wants Messi to finish his career in

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said he wants Lionel Messi to finish his career with Barcelona.

This comes amid increased speculation that Messi could be reunited with him at The Etihad.

The former Barca manager signed a two-year extension with City this week, which will keep him at the club until 2023.

His decision has ramped up speculation that the Premier League side will make a move for Messi either in January or in the summer when he will be available for free.

“What I want is [for Messi] to finish his career there. I would love it, I would wish it. That is what I said I don’t know how many times, maybe a thousand times.

“I would like as a Barcelona fan for Leo to finish there. But he finishes this year his contract and I don’t know what’s going to happen in his mind.

“Right now he is a Barcelona player and the transfer market will be in June and July,” Guardiola told a press conference on Friday.
