Kevin De Bruyne isn’t worried about Messi’s failed transfer to Manchester City

Lionel Messi decided to leave Barcelona this summer. He wasn’t happy with the board and the vision of the club. But Barcelona refused to sell him at any cost without receiving his release clause of 700 million euros.

Manchester City was the front runner for signing the Argentine but Barcelona was hell-bent not to let Messi leave. So, Messi finally decided to stay at Camp Nou for this season at least.

Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne was asked whether he still thinks about the failed Messi transfer. The Belgian replied that he has removed the failed transfer from his memory and is only looking forward.

Kevin De Bruyne told the Daily Mail: “To be honest, I didn’t really think about it. If it could have happened, it would have happened.”

“If you can get Messi to your team you are always going to do it. I can see it from a playing perspective and especially as a club.”

“Business wise, the amount of sponsors and money it would have attracted would have been huge. Even if you would have paid him a load of money, in a certain way you would get it all back. So I could understand the decision (to try) in that respect.

He reiterated: “I really don’t care. I really don’t. If he would have come it would have helped us because, for me, he has been the best player of all time. But I am never looking at what players may come and what may happen, you know.”

“You play with the players you have and I think we have a pretty good team in that respect. It would be stupid of me to assume what would happen if a certain player came. It happens in football all the time. People are supposed to come and eventually they don’t.”

“I was also pretty occupied at the time anyway (with the birth of his third child).”

The Premier League starts today but Manchester City will be kickstarting their 2020-21 campaign next weekend against Wolves.
