Barcelona star Lionel Messi shuts down Man City hopes

Barcelona star Lionel Messi shuts down Man City hopes

Despite the fact that there is a World Cup to play for, all the talk is about how and why he should leave Paris Saint-Germain for a better team.

A return to Barcelona has been touted, not to mention a switch to the Premier League, yet Real are the favourites and manager Zinedine Zidane is a big fan of the Brazil worldwide.

Lionel Messi believes it would be a bad blow to Barcelona if Neymar moved to Real Madrid.

Messi and Neymar had four trophy-laden at Camp Nou but the Argentian admits it would be tough to see Neymar at their rivals, telling TyC Sports: 'It would be awful because of everything that Ney means to Barcelona.

"Seeing Neymar at Real Madrid would be bad", he said in an interview with TyC via Mirror.

It would be bad because of everything Ney means for Barcelona.

"Ney won important trophies here".

SA league champions Sundowns host their Spanish counterparts in the highly anticipated Nelson Mandela Centenary Cup encounter and the uncertainty over Messi's availability had been a huge source of unease for the nation's soccer lovers.

"Besides, it would make Madrid stronger than they are".

"I fight to win everything, I do not need to go anywhere else to prove anything". "I speak with him, so he already knows what I think".

Mohamed Salah insists he can not be compared with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, as he is yet to consistently perform over a prolonged period of a number of years.

Messi and Neymar will be rivals this summer as Argentina and Brazil chase World Cup glory in Russian Federation.

Liverpool defeated Brighton 4-0 on the final day of the Premier League season, but were unable to overhaul Tottenham to move into third, with Spurs beating Leicester City 5-4 in a nine-goal thriller.
