The chief operating officer of the Premier League club has said that Manchester City is in a position to sign Lionel Messi if the chance is forthcoming next year.
After the 33-year-old Argentina handed over an official notice to Barcelona in August of his wish to end his deal, the city was the frontrunners of landing Messi ‘s services.
The world player 6 times the year opted to remain in Spain, the last in the next season of the year, because he didn’t want to face a legal battle with his teenager’s club, with whom he has raised more than 30 big trophies.
“He’s the world’s best player, he’s his generation’s best player. I believe that every club in the world would like to explore if he can join their squad, “Omar Berrada told Evening News at Manchester.
“This is probably the exception we would make to future investments … But with this new band, our preparation was completed, and the possibilities that we currently have are taken into account.
“We need to be prepared for all positions because so many things can happen, but at the same time, I believe we are able to make the investments when appropriate financially and systemically.”
