Pablo Zabaleta, former Manchester City player, and skipper feel that Lionel Messi should move to the Premier League.
Pablo Zabaleta wasted no time endorsing his former club as he said, “Manchester City have perfect conditions for Lionel Messi.”
He has spent nine years with the citizens. Through his leadership, he won them two Premier League titles in the years 2012 and 2014. He has seen many players who have caught his fancy, with fellow Argentine Sergio (Kun) Aguero being one. But he has never seen a player like Lionel Messi, with his dribbling and shooting skills unparalleled to others.
Pablo Zabaleta has worked with the Argentine during international games. On November 23rd, 2013, Pablo Zabaleta said in an interview with Bleacher Report that, “Lionel Messi always asks about Manchester City to me.”
Furthermore, he said that “other financially cohesive clubs like PSG and Juventus will enter the market for him.” He states that Messi will be attracted at the prospect of playing in England over other leagues.
Lionel Messi can move from La Liga to the Premier League and hope for immediate success, just as his best friend and compatriot Sergio Aguero.
Pablo Zabaleta: Messi knows Pep Guardiola very well
Accordingly, he feels that Lionel Messi will cherish the idea of being reunited with his former boss.
Messi and Pep have an excellent working relationship. Subsequently, Pep used him as the focal point of his attack team at Barcelona. The TIKI-TAKA style of Pep was most effective due to the dribbling capabilities of the Argentine superstar.
Could Messi and Pep create another revolutionary team at Manchester City? Only time will confess.
