'I'd be delighted if Man City get Messi' - Liverpool legend Carragher disappointed Barcelona star isn't coming to the Premier League yet - Liverpool legend Carragher disappointed Barcelona star isn't coming to the Premier League yet


Lionel Messi Barcelona Man City

Jamie Carragher has revealed he was 'hoping' Manchester City could find a way to seal a deal to sign Lionel Messi, even though it would have put Pep Guardiola's side in pole position to reclaim the Premier League title from Liverpool.

Speaking to Goal at a Sky Sports event, Liverpool legend Carragher admitted he was excited by the potential prospect of Messi coming to the Premier League, with the Argentine star heavily linked with a move to City as he considered quitting Barcelona.

Messi told Goal in a world exclusive interview on Friday that he had decided to see out the final year of his contract and Carragher admits he is disappointed that one of the world's great sporting icons will not be on the Premier League cast list next season.

With Messi vowing to see out the final year of his Barcelona contract before becoming a free agent next summer, any move to City may merely have been put on ice and Carragher is hoping the Argentine maestro will eventually come to England.

"I want Messi in the Premier League, even if that means he is playing for Man City and Liverpool would have an even tougher challenge to win the title," Carragher told Goal.

"I would just like to watch him every week, go to games and see him in the flesh and analyse him. I'd be delighted if City get him at some point in the next year.

"This might sound strange, but I probably wouldn't want Liverpool to sign Messi. I just feel Liverpool are more about the team ethic than a City side that relies on individuals to produce moments of magic. Also, the financial figures weare hearing are just mind-blowing and I wonder how it would affect that Liverpool dressing room if a deal like that was done.

"Another question on this Messi story is whether Financial Fair Play is even still a thing? I don't know at this stage, but if Messi comes to England it would be great for the Premier League."
