There’s is no talk about Messi’s arrival at Manchester City
Eric Garcia said that there is no talk about the possible arrival of Leo Messi at the club at Manchester City. The Argentine has made it clear that he wants to leave Barcelona, and City are reportedly the front-runners for his signature. However, Garcia insists that this is an issue that has not been discussed by his teammates. “At Manchester City, we have not yet started the preseason. So nothing has been said about Messi’s possible arrival,” He said at a press conference. “I imagine that a lot of clubs would like to have him, but I’m going to dodge if it will be good for the team. I am not going to comment on this and cannot get involved in this matter”. Garcia has been connected with a return to Barcelona and admitted that he would not renew his contract at City, which expires in summer 2021.
“I indeed told Manchester City that I have no intention of renewing my deal next year. Still, now I am thinking of returning to Man City when the break is over, and I am focused on this season,” Garcia said. Garcia has earned his first senior challenge to Spain and insists that he is ready to compete for the starting place. “I want to display that Spain can count on me because what comes from the pitch cannot be controlled,” Garcia admitted. “Diego Llorente and Pau Torres are here in the Spanish national team, and the three of us have to play alongside Sergio Ramos.”
