Josep Guardiola remains at Manchester City until 2022 – and people see it as part of 'Messi plan'.

Saddam: "Pep has signed a new contract with City – that means one thing, Messi is joining him next summer. Period."

Nan Nanni: "That means that Messi will leave Barca to Man City. Messi is not happy and knows it will be difficult to stay. All the blame he gets now doesn't help him to stay. The only thing he wants is to win the Champions League."

Supkingz123: "So Messi is on a free this summer, he's not signing a deal with Barcelona and tbh I doubt they can even afford him. I see Barca losing Messi and getting Depay and Wijnaldum in."

kalakuttaa: "Messi to City in January. Here we go."

lewis30491: "De Bruyne and Messi in the same team. Wow."

BoiledGoose69: "Obviously there are no other viable options. The point still stands tho, it will be nice to see Messi in the league but it's sad that it will be in Manchester."

ALLAM_Amine: "Time to order those Man City flairs then huh... "

ffs_fml: "Pep's extension and impending Aguero one should seal it. Messi doesn't seem like he's happy at all with the situation at Barca, even with Bartomeu gone."

HamesWalker [West Ham supporter]: "Tevez, Zabaleta, Zarate, Lanzini... Messi."

Wasssan: "Messi is actually coming to the Premier League."

@harry_mcfc20: "Pep signs a contract extension as Messi rumours start up again? Coincidence? Nah. The two goats will reunite."

@vipul21lva: "Pep signing a new contract and Messi comes out with the latest statement must have some connection. Or am I thinking too much?"

@mcfctaylor_: "Pep signs a two-year deal and Messi was rumoured to be doing two years at City and one year in New York... Could it be happening... "
