REVEALED: Messi calls Guardiola about shock Barcelona return

Lionel Messi wants Barcelona to bring Pep Guardiola back from Manchester City.

Guardiola left the Nou Camp after a revolutionary four-year spell before taking a sabbatical and going on to manage, first Bayern Munich, and now Manchester City.

The Sun says a shocking 4-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain has led to reports Luis Enrique will leave his post as manager in the summer — and there are even fears Messi will go, with no new contract agreed as yet.

It is our understanding that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner wants Guardiola to come back in the summer.

Messi has personally called Guardiola and asked him to consider a return to the Nou Camp.

He insists Luis Enrique has created a rift so huge within the Barcelona camp that only the current City boss can repair.
