How big are Lionel Messi’s chances of signing for Manchester City? That’s not known yet. But it’s possible that he leaves FC Barcelona on June 30, when his contract runs out. His latest conflict with his contract being leaked could lead him to exit.  His two most likely destinations are PSG and Manchester City.     

In PSG he’d meet two national team friends, Leandro Paredes and Ángel Di María. In case he heads to Manchester City, Sergio Agüero and Pep Guardiola would welcome him onboard. Since the coach and his staff arrived to the club, they imposed the passion to regain the ball. Then, results and confidence help to the outcome which led to many titles. 

Guardiola, as clear as always.

Guardiola clearly assured that nobody can play in Manchester City if whoever he is feels no passion and behavior to recover the ball. “That’s the A for us”, said the Spanish coach in a recent press conference. The attitude of running as much as possible to recover the ball, and then dribble or pass are a must, will not have any future with him.

After 20 rounds in the English Premier League, Manchester City is leading on 44 points, three ahead of Manchester United, having with 10 wins and two draws in the last 12 matches for this tournament.
