Pep Guardiola Has No Complaints Despite Missing Out On Lionel Messi

City were widely viewed as the front-runners for his signature, with a reunion between Messi and Guardiola heavily tipped to happen before the six-time Ballon d'Or victor announced he would remain at Barcelona for the final year of his contract, accusing president Josep Maria Bartomeu of going back on his word and making the financial cost of any deal for a buying club "impossible".

Messi will be able to leave Barca for free next summer but his former coach Guardiola, who was Barcelona's most successful-ever manager with 14 trophies in four years between 2008 and 2012, is in the dark over whether he is keen to come to Manchester.

In the summer's biggest transfer saga, Messi attempted to force through a move from Barca after his disillusionment with the running of the club reached tipping point.

But despite not helping the Citizens land the Premier League title, FA Cup and the Champions League this season Guardiola still believes no midfielder presently compares to the Belgian. "Leo explained quite well his feelings, I don't have anything to add".

Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman has said Luis Suarez will be treated like any other player if he ends up staying at the club this season, despite leaving the Uruguayan striker out of the squad for the second match in a row. It's a question for Leo Messi. "I can not talk about the intentions for other people".

Sergio Aguero will miss the start of the season due to a long-term knee injury, while Aymeric Laporte will also be absent on Monday due to a lack of pre-season training after testing positive for coronavirus.

"So far really good", he said of how Ake and Torres had settled.

According to Gazzetta, the university is one of the most recognized for its campus of non-Italian students and is an accredited institution where a foreigner can take the language exam required for an Italian passport (This is the CELI and the required level is B1).

Nevertheless, Guardiola has no qualms over how his club have backed him in the transfer market.

"The club do absolutely everything to do their best for all of us".
