Ex-Manchester City defender, Danny Mills has come out to say that City is the only realistic next destination for Lionel Messi if he should exit Barcelona.
Danny is, however, confused as to how the Argentine forward would fit into Pep Guardiola’s system or who would make way for him if he joins.
According to Mills, Pep would need to alter his entire system to accommodate Messi in his starting line-up.
He added that Guardiola understands Messi very well from his days at Barca and the team would most likely be built around him at the English club.
His words, “Manchester City is the only club he could go to,”
“Because of the way that they play and his relationship with Pep Guardiola, Pep probably understands him more than anybody from his days at Barcelona.
“You think of Manchester United and there’s been talk of that, but I don’t see him going there. City is the only place I think he could come to the Premier League.
“He is sensational, we know that, but you’d have to build the whole team around him, he needs legs around him.
“And you suddenly think, well, actually, where would you play him at City? You’d have to change everything. He’d play instead of who?
“And is he really desperate to come to Manchester? He knows what the weather is like, I’m sure.
“He’s used to Barcelona and South America, I’m not sure Manchester is going to be his cup of tea.”
