Pep Guardiola leaves Manchester City door open for Lionel Messi

Liverpool fans react as Pep Guardiola signs new deal at Man City

Raheem Sterling "will be offered a new contract and significant pay rise" by Manchester City to ensure the England star is with the club for the peak years of his career.

Ahead of City's Premier League clash with Tottenham, Guardiola was asked about the future of Messi, and although he insisted that he hopes he will remain at Barcelona until the end of his career, but admitted that his future was unclear given that he is in the previous year of his contract.

Writing on his Betfair Column, the World Cup victor said: "Reaching an agreement to renew Messi's contract is going to be tough with a reduced margin to increase his salary. As a fan, I want Leo to end his career there".

One big sticking point for City is their manager's determination to see Messi remain at the Nou Camp.

"He is too young to go back to Argentina, and I don't think there is any other club where they have the right manager in place where Messi would go in and feel comfortable under that manager". That is what I said I don't know how many times, maybe a thousand times.

NASA's OSIRIS-REx successfully collected bits of an orbiting asteroid
NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft is set to bring home the sample it obtained from asteroid Bennu in a couple of years. The Apollo missions between 1969 and 1972 brought back 382 kilograms of moon rock, pebble and stone samples.

His contract with the Catalan club will finish after this season and can join another club on a free transfer next summer, if Barcelona fail to convince the Argentine to sign an extension. That is the only thing in our mind.

Guardiola has committed to a further two years at City to try to deliver the Champions League, a competition he twice won with Messi at Barca, but has failed to win at subsequent clubs Bayern Munich and City. "I can't say the rest". If we don't have success, we are less happy and we are going to change.

"With the discussions around - and I take it really serious - what we are talking about with dementia and all the concussion stuff with heading, if people would have talked about that 50 years ago we wouldn't have to discuss it today. The second season, and the third, and the fourth, it was so clear for City two times and Liverpool once", he said.

"I'm still enjoying this job, what happens in two years I can not answer".
