Man City is in the most favorable position to do this. Not only Pep Guardiola, Green Man also has Sergio Aguero in the squad and the club of the team also has CEO Ferran Soriano & CEO Txiki Begiristain, who worked with Pep at Barca previously.
Even the club coaching staff includes Rodolfo Borrell, who led Messi in the Barca youth team.
Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain’s chances are really not great. They are rich and have just had a season to reach the Champions League final, but there are disagreements at this club over a power competition between coach Thomas Tuchel and technical director Leonardo. Tuchel was not Guardiola, but PSG was busy resolving internal disputes, afraid Messi would not want to come.
And MU, the more difficult because even though they are also rich, their prospects are not really bright enough for Messi to want to join. Leo with limited English can work with Pep, Aguero and his Spanish countrymen at the club, but does he want to cooperate with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer? Not to mention the position of MU at this time is not equal to Barcelona, but Messi left Barca to find opportunities to compete for the title, not to go back.
As for other teams, people talked about the unbelievable prospect but dream Messi kicked with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus, but unbelievable is because the Serie A champion is bleeding money because of the salary of 30 million euros/year of CR7. Real Madrid is even more unbelievable because Messi is only hostile to Barca’s leadership
Messi’s ability to return to his hometown of Argentina is very low as he still wants to compete for the title. That is why the US, China and the Middle East are even more difficult, especially after China imposed a ceiling salary on foreign soldiers.
Lionel Messi chose to join Man City, making PSG and MU no longer have a chance.
While the public is still not shocked by the news that Lionel Messi wants to leave Barcelona as a free transfer, journalist Marcelo Bechler recently published an information confirming Messi has determined his next destination, Premier League runner-up Man City led by Pep Guardiola.
Bechler, who announced Neymar’s Paris Saint-Germain three years ago and revealed his intention to leave the club 10 days ago, said Messi contacted his ex-teacher Guardiola a few days ago to discuss the possibility of joining. City. And after Pep got in touch with CEO Ferran Soriano & sporting director Txiki Begiristain, he received confirmation that Man City could afford to recruit the Argentinian superstar.
Although PSG and MU have approached Messi’s trusted people, these two clubs have almost no chance to convince Leo to come back to them. Bechler said the only problem is that Messi can leave Barca on a free transfer or not, because that will affect the financial aspects that Man City can meet for the deal.
Barcelona fans are shocked after news that Lionel Messi is looking to leave the club on a free transfer. And although Barca is trying to prevent it (but not to keep him), the door has opened for other clubs to invite Messi to join.
Sport newspaper in Catalunya recently said that both Paris Saint-Germain and MU contacted Messi’s neighbors to invite him to join. Both clubs have the financial strength to meet the salary requirements of the Argentine superstar and pay transfer fees if Barca demands.
But the chances of these two clubs are very low because Xavi Campos, correspondent for Cat Radio and one of the most reliable sources of Barcelona, revealed a few days ago Messi had direct contact with Pep Guardiola. The topic was nothing more than a discussion of the possibility of Leo joining Man City, and Campos said Pep had told City officials to calculate the number for bringing Messi to the Etihad.
Liverpool were ridiculed by Man City fans with a video related to the 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace when they lost the championship six years ago.
Liverpool stumbled in the final weeks of the 2013/14 season, including losing to Chelsea 0-2 at home on April 27, before drawing a 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park a week later.
Liverpool of Brendan Rodgers coach at the time lost his first Premier League title with a gap of 2 points. That’s because rival Man City came to the throne after winning all the last 5 matches.
This outcome was truly bitter for Liverpool and especially painful for Steven Gerrard, who was known for his fall in a defeat to Chelsea that was defined as the moment of throwing everything away.
However, letting the Palace draw 3-3 on 5/5/2014 also made The Kop pay the same price as Chelsea.
Liverpool at the time had 3 points more than Man City, the team had a match in hand. But a 3-3 draw means they are just one point ahead of Pellegrini’s team – with a goal difference of +50 to +59 – and need a miracle to win the championship.
In this match, 3 goals from Joe Allen, Damien Delaney (own goal) and Luis Suarez gave the visitors a 3-0 lead, a seemingly irreversible outcome.
But Delaney’s equalizer in the 79th minute left Liverpool dizzy and continued to concede twice more slowly Dwight Gayle in the last 10 minutes.
To mark the 6th anniversary of the match called the “Crystanbul” (alluding to Liverpool’s comeback against Milan in the C1 Cup in Istanbul), the Man City fan’s Twitter @City_Xtra posted a humorous video, a little cruel phase about that fateful evening of Liverpool.
