Pep Guardiola was irritated on his return to Barcelona by suggestions he tried to poach the Nou Camp's finest for Manchester City this summer.

But the former Barca boss claimed it was not beyond the realms of possibility that superstar Lionel Messi could play in England one day.

Guardiola, who won 14 trophies in four glorious years in charge of Barca, was speaking at the Nou Camp ahead of City's Champions League clash with the Catalan giants on Wednesday.
