LIONEL MESSI is unlikely to be heading to Manchester City this summer, according to Ladbrokes.
Despite recent transfer speculation the bookies make it a 20/1 long-shot that the Argentine makes the move to the Etihad for a reunion with former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola.
Meanwhile, it's even longer odds of 33/1 for Messi to finish as the Premier League’s top scorer or be named the PFA Player of the Year winner next season.
James Curtis of Ladbrokes said: “City may believe they can land Messi if he leaves the Nou Camp but the bookies aren't convinced.
“Signing Guardiola as their new manager may be a huge coup but we fancy even he can’t tempt Leo away from Barca.”
