Lionel Messi has been urged to call Pep Guardiola and work towards joining Manchester City in the summer.
Barcelona legend, Carles Rexach said Messi, who is suspended at Paris Saint-Germain, should join Manchester City instead of the Catalan giants.
PSG suspended the 7-time Ballon d’Or winner for two weeks for taking a trip to Saudi Arabia without their approval.
Reports say authorities at PSG feel slighted by the Argentina maestro’s action.
There are indications that the 35-year-old will leave Paris when his contract expires at the end of the current season with a huge speculation surrounding his future.
Rexach believes that the blue side of Manchester should be his best destination.
A return to Barcelona has also been mooted as a potential option for Messi who has been linked with clubs in Saudi Arabia.
“The ideal team for Lionel Messi is Manchester City because he can still shine there,” Rexach said on Radio Villa Trinidad.
“If you ask me, the team that plays the way Barcelona played ten years ago is Manchester City and it is the place where Messi could fit in to continue winning things.
“Messi always has to play at the top level,” Rexach added. “He should speak directly with Guardiola to get him to sign him up and look to win another Champions League.”
