According to an update by Spanish outlet Deportes Cuatro, via Man City Xtra, Barcelona superstar and heavily linked target Lionel Messi is ‘increasingly closer’ to leaving the Nou Camp amid reports Pep Guardiola and Txiki Begiristain are looking to bring him to Manchester.
Indeed, as per this report, City are also looking to take advantage and ‘secure the operation’ in January – prompting many Sky Blues to go wild over this latest Messi update.
Should Man City sign Messi in January?
No, don't need him
The Argentine, who was heavily linked with a move over the summer, could still make his way to the Etihad Stadium – a scenario which is arguably more probable now that Guardiola has put pen to paper on a two-year extension.
After an exciting few days to be a City supporter, with the manager committing his future, this report that Messi could be edging closer has many Sky Blues in full voice.
Find all of their best verdicts down below, as fans praised the ‘exciting’ update.
