    Hopefully he will see out his contract with Barcelona, then top up his pension in China. It makes sense for Barca to cash in on him now, as he's a couple of months off 30. Does it make sense for City to splash out silly money on a 30 year old that's passed his best and unproven in the Premier League?

    He's scored 17 goals in 16 games against Premier League clubs, his best record against any league in the UCL, including putting four past us in two games this year.

    You have to be out of your fucking mind if you genuinely think Messi is over the hill and potentially unable to perform at the highest level against Stoke and Burnley.

    I'd pay good money to watch Messi make a fool of Phil Bardsley. In fact it doesn't have to be Messi.

    We all know how the media would spin it.

    If he signed for us he'd be too old, only here for money, a tax dodger, not as good as Ronaldo and after one dodgy game probably compared unfavourably to Hazard and Coutinho by some bellend like Robbie Savage.

    If he'd signed for the rags of course, he'd be lauded as the greatest of all time and the biggest signing in history.

    They'll have to sell at least 3 players for that to happen,IMO.

    that's nothing to do with rules, rules are same everywhere in spain. it's hard to get Bilbao club player because they used to have an unwritten rule that they sign only Basque players (I think they they broke it this season) so the money wasn't the most important thing for them. There are not a huge pool of top class Basque players so sometimes they can't do a lot with that money and would rather keep player no matter what price is offered for them.

    Yeah lets go for a young PL proven player like Nathan Redmond, come off it. It's Messi, he'll be better than most players in the PL when he's 40.

    There can't still be people who question Messi's ability to play in the Premier League? Pedro is ripping it up ( first season is a write off, whole team gave up ) and Messi was better than Pedro ever has been at the age of 17. Fucking Michu came in and looked good. It's the same old mentality that questioned David Silva. Oh he's small, British football is tough, can't handle it.

    He's signing a new contract which will effectively end his career at Barca.
