A door to a move to Manchester City has been opened by Lionel Messi’s father and agent, publicly admitting that it would be “difficult” for the six-time winner of the Ballon d’Or to stay in Barcelona.
“Future in Barcelona? It is tough? It would be hard to stay,” Jorge Messi told El Chrininguito about his son’s current situation after arriving in Barcelona on Wednesday.
“I haven’t talked to Pep. There’s nothing with City yet,” Jorge also replied on rumors about City’s interest in the Blaugrana talisman.
