Manchester City may have reportedly taken a hit in their rumored search for transfer of Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
The Argentine international has been linked to City for 90min and others as of late, but now it looks like he might be heading for a surprise decision about his future.
Despite approaching the end of his contract with Barcelona, it appears Messi is set to stay at Camp Nou until 2023, and then move on to MLS’s Inter Miami, according to Ser string.
This would undoubtedly be a dream signing for David Beckham’s club, and it looks like they could have the upper hand in this transfer battle as Messi is eager for his sons to go to school in America.
Sadly, this means that we may never see Messi in the Premier League after all, which is a blow for City, but also for English football fans in general.
The 33-year-old forward is probably the greatest footballer of all time, and it would have been a joy to see him in the Premier League before the end of his career.
