5 reasons Lionel Messi will be joining Manchester City



There have been recent speculations that Barcelona playmaker Lionel Messi is on the verge of leaving Camp Nou for another club, reportedly Manchester City prompting us to look at the possible reasons that might propel his move to the English club.

The Argentine has reportedly declined to sign a new deal at Barcelona and wants to be a free agent come next summer which makes his quitting Camp Nou even authentic.

In the GALLERY below are 5 reasons why Lionel Messi will join Manchester City next summer:

05. The Pep Guardiola connection

Leo Messi and Pep Guardiola credit each other for what they are right now. And if it wasn't for the manager, Messi would not have been at Barcelona right now.

A documentary by TV3 revealed that Messi had decided to leave Barcelona last summer because of the tax fraud issues and was keen on joining Manchester City. However, Guardiola met him in person and convinced him to stay at Camp Nou.

Now with his contract expiring and the Argentine not sure if he wants to stay again, Manchester City might take advantage of the situation and sign him up. Guardiola is the only manager he would want to work under and Pep isn't going to leave Manchester City anytime soon.
