The former Barcelona midfielder believes that Lionel Messi's days playing at the top of his game are numbered, and that a transfer to Manchester United or Manchester City makes no sense

Manchester City and Manchester United should forget about signing Barcelona star Lionel Messi — because he isn’t built for the Premier League like Cristiano Ronaldo was.
That’s the view of top-flight title winner Emmanuel Petit, a man who spent three years at Arsenal and Chelsea with a year at Barca sandwiched in between.
He said: “Honestly, I don’t think he’s suited to the intensity of England.
“He doesn’t like being closed down and being fought.
“In Spain, he’s protected.
“It would be a pleasure for English fans to see him but I don’t see why a club like Manchester City , for example, would move for Messi at 32 or 33.
