Guardiola about Messi future

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he hopes Lionel Messi finishes his career at Barcelona but does not think a move to England is completely out of the question.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has reiterated his wish to see Lionel Messi finish his career at Barcelona.

The Argentina skipper is currently locked in contract talks with the Catalan club but Guardiola says he expects Messi to finish his career at the Nou Camp.

“I told you more than once that Messi will stay at Barcelona and he will finish his career at Barcelona,” the City manager said ahead of his side’s match at Burnley on Saturday.

“It’s my wish. I wish that he goes from the beginning to the end at Barcelona.”
