Arsenal has the worst record of an English team against Man City target Lionel Messi

One of the biggest stories around the world right now is that Lionel Messi will leave Barcelona this summer.

The Argentinean has reportedly told the Catalans that he wants to leave and he has asked for his deal to be terminated so that he can join another team.

Only a few teams can afford the talented South American and one of them is Manchester City.

Several reports claim that the attacker will end up at the Etihad when the saga is over as he wants a reunion with Pep Guardiola.

Should he make it to the Etihad, then Arsenal is the team that should be more worried about that.

This is because the Argentinean has scored the highest number of goals against an English opponent against reports the Mail.

Messi has played six times against Arsenal and he has found the back of the net on nine occasions.

A move to Manchester City will improve the Citizens, but I don’t think we should be too worried about that.

One reason is that he will struggle with the physical nature of the Premier League, another reason is that he will not be an exception for this ever-improving Arsenal team.

We have gotten better at defending and most of it is down to Mikel Arteta’s tactics.

I think that the Spaniard will be able to come up with a game plan to neutralise Messi.

  1. The basis of this article would be something I’d expect to see on a spuds web site. I must ask you Ime, are you this desperate to find something to write about?

    1. Declan, you beat me to it.
      Ime, what, exactly, was the point of this article?
      I’m not being critical, but I just don’t get it – sorry mate!

  2. Way too soon to start this foolish speculation. I realise (and have for a longtime) that this site is more interested in hype and improbable rumours than probable actual happenings but even so, Messi is a long way from becoming a City player and many knowing judges believe he will eventually stay at Barcelona but under a new regime there. Pointless speculating on very unlikely happenings then, in my view..
