It’s widely expected that Lionel Messi will move from Barcelona after the Argentinian apparently made it clear that he’s had enough of the club and wants a fresh start somewhere else.
Given that his mentor, Pep Guardiola, is now in charge of Manchester City, and with the Premier League club not short of cash, it’s thought that a move to the Etihad Stadium is Messi’s most likely destination.
At present, no decision would appear to have been made, but that hasn’t stopped eagle-eyed City fans from believing that Barca’s No.10 is on his way to England.
Countryman, Sergio Aguero, a long-time friend and international playing colleague of Messi’s, made a subtle change to his Instagram handle and, suffice to say, it’s sent some supporters into meltdown.
Any deal is still a long way from being concluded of course, and there’s no guarantee that City will be able to afford Messi’s gargantuan wages, however, until there’s a definitive no to the switch, it won’t stop City fans from dreaming.
Sergio Aguero just changed his Instagram username from “kunaguero10” to “kunaguero”.
