Jorge Messi- the father of Lionel Messi and his agent has broken the silence on the recent meeting with the Barcelona board.
He revealed that it is difficult for Messi to remain at Barcelona and he also denied that he had a conversation with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola about a possible move to the Etihad outfit this summer.
The 62-year-old agent told El Chiringuito: “A future at Barcelona? It is difficult. It would be difficult to stay.”
Pushed on City’s interest in the 33-year-old, Jorge responded: “I haven’t talked with Pep. There is nothing yet with City.”
Champions League finalist Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan are also linked with a move for the Barcelona star.
Messi failed to attend the pre-season medical test at Camp Not and also failed to attend a meeting with the club president Josep Maria Bartomeu, a sign that he is serious about the transfer request sent via burofax last week.
