Forget About Messi Font To City – Victor Font has told Manchester City to back down interest in Lionel Messi regardless of their desperate need for the Argentine.
According to the presidential candidate, Messi’s contract renewal will be a key part of his appointment.
Font in an interview published by talkSPORTS said; “I already told [Ferran] Soriano [chief executive] to forget about Messi, to look for alternatives to win the Champions League. “Messi will continue with us and we will win the Champions League”.
The Daily Mail has reported that City have been drawing up a ten-year plan for signing Messi which would start with a multi-year contract.
He was not involved in the squad to face Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday night in the Champions League, a decision which fuels speculation of his unhappiness in the club. The sic time Balon d’Or winner is free to speak to interested parties from January as he seeks to make a free transfer after the season.
