Immediately, my mind went to Lionel Messi. It would be a huge coup and while he is not Messi of old, he can still contribute in a team stacked with stars. He would not have to be the main focal point and could contribute in other ways.

Other names have been thrown out there and I believe most City fans knew summer 2021 would be a busy one as the club looks to recruit another fullback and a midfielder in addition to Messi and a star.
Many possibilities. Fewer certainties. We’ll see where this leads as Pep looks to revitalize this team and lead to even higher heights.
Thoughts on the report and names being mentioned?
