Barcelona star Lionel Messi shuts down Man City hopes

Lionel Messi is hoping talks about Neymar joining Real Madrid in the summer are just pure speculation and that they do not come to fruition, as he is certain it would be "terrible" for Barcelona. Moreover, the Argentinean is concerned the move, if it were to happen, would make Real a much stronger team.

Should Real Madrid wish to actually deliver the "huge blow" to Messi and their rivals at Barcelona, they may have to get past the Emir of Qatar.

Both players will be available for Saturday's La Liga game at Villarreal, the team's final match ahead of the following weekend's Champions League final against Liverpool on May 26.

The Argentina captain told TyC Sports channel programme "Libero" (via Sport): "It would be awful [if Neymar moved to Madrid] because of everything he means to Barcelona".

That has been the idea pushed by many around the Bernabeu throughout the 2017-18 campaign, although the narrative has been strongly countered by PSG's Qatari owners who have firmly maintained their world-record €222 million signing is not going anywhere.

Madrid will be looking to lift the Champions League for the third year in a row in Kiev, whereas Liverpool are bidding for their sixth European crown. "One watches other leagues, but at the time to decide, it's hard to leave Barcelona".

He added: "I always want to improve myself and I do not compete with anyone because I do not play to be the best in history but to improve myself year after year and to keep winning". "I do not need to go to another team to prove anything", the Argentina worldwide said when asked about moving to another club.

"Cristiano Ronaldo and Dani Carvajal trained alongside their teammates, which meant that Zinedine Zidane had a full squad available to him".
